The 2011 vintage was marked by a cool wet spring, a long growing season and a very small crop. The 2011 Serenity is a distinctive proprietary blend that displays fruit forward aromas of citrus, honeysuckle, nectarine and with expressive minerality. The flavors are rich and deep showing white peach, passion fruit, and honeydew melon with a hint of lime. The wine is well balanced, leaving a l ong, clean and well-textured finish, like summer in a glass.
Blend: 56% Pinot Grigio, 31% Sauvignon Blanc, 13% Gewurztraminer
About the Vineyard
Our home ranch on the Westside of High Valley Appellation has been known as "High Serenity Ranch" for over one hundred years, lending the namesake to our expressive proprietary white blend. The Estate vineyard blocks producing fruit for the Serenity are on the valley floor situated 1800' feet above sea level and are comprised of gravelly loam soils. The Estate Vineyard is one of the coldest growing sites within Lake County. The diurnal temperature swings allow for longer hang-time, enhancing flavor development and acid retention in the juice and finished wine.
very good, not bitter, not sweet. I guess that would be "crisp"
