Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Aromas of grapefruit and white peaches fill the glass and flow into great taste sensations. Flavors of lemon grass and melon grab the taste buds and are balanced perfectly with just the right amount of acidity from the citrus notes. The finish is clean as a whistle with the fruit notes trailing off, and acidity cleansing the palette.

Winemaker's Notes

The freshly pressed juice was allowed to cold soak with the skins and pulp of the grapes for 2-3 days to integrate flavors and build body prior to fermentation. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks was cool and slow, lasting 3-4 weeks.

    The quality here has been consistent over the past few vintages, offering solid value in an easy-drinking style. It leads with herbal aromas, but the flavors are less green, more melon and fig carried by a sense of creamy lushness.
