Winemaker's Notes:

Showing great intensity of flavors, this wine highlights brassy citrus notes balanced by complex tropical fruit flavors and layered, textured notes of spice. Medium bodied, it finishes cleanly with great length and complexity.

About Balverne :

In 1992 the property was purchased by its current owner Bob Stein, who renamed the property Windsor Oaks Vineyards. The property was successfully managed as a vineyard, selling fruit to over 35 highly regarded wineries throughout the state. Winemaking resumed on the property in 2005 under the Windsor Oaks name and in 2012, Bob and his wife Renee made the decision to honor the legacy of their beloved property by re-introducing the Balverne name.

Their wines are produced by Margaret Davenport, who is well known for her many years at Clos du Bois winery. The inaugural Pinot Noir, vintage 2010, was produced by the original winemaker for Windsor Oaks, Julie Lumgair. They are also very fortunate to have Balverne’s first winemaker, Doug Nalle, consulting on the wines, bringing his years of experience back to the property where he began his career.
