Winemaker's Notes:

A burst of tropical fruit on the nose. Pineapple and banana with a hint of mango and coconut. Very refreshing on the palate. The wine is aged only in stainless steel (no oak) so the fruit really shines through, along with the bright acidity. The fruit carries through, with pineapple truly dominating, but grapefruit also makes an appearance.

Will pair well with many foods, especially salads and spicy Indian food. Try with curry in a coconut based sauce.

About Clos LaChance:

Clos LaChance is a small, family-owned winery, located in the heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains. We produce limited quantities of hand-made wines from local vineyards and other premium appellations throughout Northern California. The name Clos LaChance is derived from the French word "clos" for the fenced area around a vineyard (in this case the owners' home vineyard), and from co-owner Brenda Murphy's maiden name, LaChance.

The Clos LaChance trademark - a hummingbird among the grapevines - is the primary feature on our label. The hummingbird was chosen not only for its grace and style, but also for its strength. The hummingbird is a welcome addition into vineyards for its "energetic" efforts in keeping other birds away.
