This is the first time that the majority of the grapes are from our farm, showing that the new varieties planted are adapting well. We have been planting Roussanne and Grenache Blanc over the past few years and this first experience is encouraging.
Intense aromas of soft pear and litchi accompanied by floral notes and coconut hints. A rounded palate shows rich apricot and marzipan with a slight oily texture on the finish, balanced well by fruit-driven freshness.
"Juicy, with tasty green apple and melon fruit offset by a verbena note that adds some cut to the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made."
"Light yellow. Fruit-driven aromas of pear, apple, citrus zest and honeysuckle. Surprisingly supple on the palate, with juicy flavors of more tropical fruits and spices. The enticing, moderately persistent finish shows spice and flint notes and good lift. A very successful blend and an excellent value."
