Winemaker's Notes

Platinum, yellow-green hues, with lovely white stone fruits, hard Christmas candy, lemon zest, orange marmalade or sugared peel, spice, and minerality on the nose. White peach, citrus, allspice, and mineral flavors continue on the palate, but with a huge, sweet impression countered by great acidity. The wine speaks impressively of weight, balance, and richness.

Critical Acclaim

"Another fine white wine from Chehalem, dry but not sour, with lovely sweet/tart peach and pear, honeysuckle and lime flavors co-mingled. It has a full midpalate and a clean, refreshing finish. "
92 Points

"Brilliantly aromatic, brimming with lime-accented green apple, pear and a waft of mint as the dry, tangy finish carries the flavors through the long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2018. 438 cases made. "
