Winemaker's Notes

Grapes are organically grown on 35-40 year old vines. Cover crops and leaf pulling are practiced to promote optimal vineyard conditions. Ladybugs, not chemicals, are used to combat pests.

Although there are hints of grass and mineral, this wine has generous fruit expression predominated by citrus fruit and honeydew melon with subtle tropical fruit expressions of pineapple, finishing with an almost crisp acidity.
