Richness and density of aromas, with a nice blend of spiciness, toastiness and fresh fruit notes of golden apple, apricot, and white plums. The mouthfeel is juicy, round and creamy, with a balance of mineral notes, spices and fresh fruit tones of apricot and Fuji apple. The mid-palate has good weight and a bright acid balance with notes of fresh bread dough, honeysuckle and Meyer lemon, leading to a rich and complex finish.Download Fact Sheet
The grapes are hand-harvested in the cool morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition. The individual vineyard lots are fermented separately at cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. This wine has been aged on secondary fermentation yeast for 32 months, adding depth and complexity to the finish.Download Fact Sheet
