Winemaker's Notes:

Rich aromas of lemon, kiwi, orange blossom and sweet basil are followed by a more precise flavor profile of jasmine, lime and ginger. Extremely taut, focused and dry palate impression.
My Notes:

About Brewer-Clifton:

While grounded in traditional ideals matched with extensive studies in Europe, the wines at Brewer-Clifton do not feel the necessity to be fettered by them. Instead, the vintners elect to employ the most sincere and vulnerable wine production practices so as to reinterpret classicism within the aesthetic of the Sta. Rita Hills.

They do not strive to emulate any other producer or any other region as they follow their own pursuit. Brewer-Clifton has espoused itself to the appellation and will continue to do everything possible display and celebrate it in as honest and impactful manner possible.
