The grapes were picked in the cool early morning hours to maintain the freshness of
the fruit. They were destemmed, left in cold skin contact for four hours, and then gently
pressed. The juice was then settled overnight before fermentation, which occurred in a
combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels. The wine was left on its lees
for several months to develop further in complexity.
Bright tropical fruit aromas lead to a
crisp, fresh palate with mouth-filling
flavors of apple, pear, honey, and
pineapple. A gentle kiss of oak adds
a creamy butterscotch nuance and
wonderful depth. A superb value, this
versatile white is a fantastic match for
a wide range of dishes, from mac &
cheese to spicy ethnic food.
