This product is currently sold out.
Region: USA / California / Russian River Valley
Type: Full-bodied white wine
Vinification: Clusters destemmed and gently pressed at night to extract freshness and acidity while avoiding astringent phenolic character from the skins. Inoculated and fermented 17 days in 47% stainless steel and 53% new French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation limited to only 19%.
Aging: 6 months in 100% new French oak.
Color: Golden yellow.
Nose: Refined aromas of green apple, pear and lemon peel with a flinty note.
Palate: Clean, bright flavors of stone fruit and citrus, backed by firm acidity where oak is an afterthought. A touch of creaminess on the mid-palate is followed by lovely mineral notes that carry through an extraordinarily long finish.
Food pairing: Fish, shellfish, fresh vegetables, poultry.
