Tasting Notes

This wine has a pale silver straw color with aromas of lychee, white peach and exotic white floral notes. In the mouth the wine exhibits a vibrant, lively acidity with bright flavors of lychee, exotic spices and white peach with hints of minerality and a long crisp finish.

Vineyard Notes

The 2017 growing season was definitely an original. Starting off with average precipitation, the winter rains facilitated vine health throughout the coastal regions and canopies looked spectacular going into spring/early summer. Bud break was ~ 7-10 days behind 2016. With no frost events, the growing year was off to a great start. Warm and sunny days followed during fruit set resulting in even cluster development. After fruit set, the growing climate was classic: cool mornings followed by warm and sunny afternoons with no dramatic heat events. A July heat wave signaled the vines to stop growing canopy and ripen the crop. Harvest began in orderly fashion, but record-breaking heat and low humidity in September pushed speedy picking for blocks that were at optimum Brix. The heat wave was followed by a cool period (and even a bit of rain) that reverted elevated sugars back to optimal Brix. Extended hang time through much of the latter portion of September into October allowed us the luxury of picking mature fruit with great flavor and developed tannins.
