(From 2014 Vintage) Grown in California's cool coastal vineyards. Crafted in small vineyard lots throughout the entire winemaking process. Whole cluster pressed to retain the fresh fruit qualities without the bitterness from stems and seeds. Fermented and aged in French and American oak barrels for richness, toastiness and complexity. Sur lie aging with monthly battonage (lees stirring) for our signature velvety texture and creamy flavor.
Concentrated citrus, melon, apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavors with buttery, toasty oak notes. A rich , creamy textured wine, with round flavors and a persistent flavor impression.
