Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with a tinge of green, gooseberry , melon rind on the nose with a touch of Serrano pepper. The palate is lively with vibrant acidity and finishes seamlessly with flavors of kiwi and lime zest

Vintage

The 2014 Vintage was warm and sunny from April on. That compounded with almost no rain contributed to early ripening and concentrated fruit. Reds will benefit from some bottle age and cellar well, this white wine is drinking beautifully right now.

Fermentation

The grapes were picked at dawn and whole cluster pressed immediately. The newly pressed juice was cold settled in tank overnight then racked off heavy solids to it’s fermentation tank and a small amount of neutral French oak barrels. The tank was inoculated with a proprietary yeast blend while the barrels were left to ferment with indigenous yeast. After a slow, cool fermentation the new wine was racked off the lees and bottled as early as possible to preserve it’s vibrant character.
