Tasting Notes

Enticing aromas of pear, kiwi and lychee. The palate is round, creamy and refined, with layers of lemon curd, bright acidity and a kiss of caramel from barrel aging. A juicy, succulent wine that leaves a lasting impression of fresh Meyer lemon and stone fruits on the crisp finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2021.

  • Harvest Dates: September 5—14, 2014
  • Vineyards: Roughly a dozen vineyard blocks from five long-term growers.
  • Fermentation: Clusters destemmed and gently pressed at night to extract freshness and acidity while avoiding astringent phenolic character from the skins. Inoculated and fermented 15 days in roughly 60% stainless steel and 40% new French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation limited to 30%.
  • Sur Lie: Two months of sur-lie aging with bâtonnage (in both stainless steel and barrel) to heighten the creamy texture of the mid-palate.
  • Cooperages: French oak barrels from eight coopers were chosen based on grain tightness, low tannin potential and light toast levels, allowing for the purity of the fruit to shine.
  • Aging: 5.5 months in 100% new French oak.
  • Selection: Double-sorting of grapes (in vineyard and at winery); press cuts done by taste to preserve the free-run juice’s pure flavors.
