Winemaker's Notes:

Intensely fresh aromatics of tropical fruit, citrus and ripe guava are followed by scents of crisp tangerine, Meyer lemon and hints of melon and pineapple. The citrus notes carry forward into the mouth and end with a crisp clean finish. Pairs wonderfully with oysters and seafood dishes.

Blend: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Pinot Gris, 5% Riesling, 1% Pinot Meunier, 1% Muscat

About Clif Family Winery:

You may know us as the people behind Clif Bar & Company. We are the makers of Clif Bar, LUNA and other nutritious, organic products. We have always had a passion for the outdoors and great food and wine. After a long day of hiking or cycling, we enjoy nothing better than relaxing over a meal with family and friends enjoyed over a great bottle of wine. After moving to the Napa Valley in 1997, this passion continued and we began making our own wine in 2004. Now with winemakers Bruce Regalia and Sarah Gott, we are committed to making high quality, affordable wines sourced from sustainable or organic vineyards whenever possible. Enjoy!
