Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant aromas of pears, yeast, melon, mango, vanilla cream, and flowers. Sweet ripe impression with flavors of melon, vanilla, mineral, spices and pears. The mouthfeel is rich and full in body, well-balanced by a flinty acidity, delivering both power and elegance. The finish is long, creamy, fresh, and clean, with lingering mineral, pear and nutty-cream flavors.
My Notes:

About Griffin Creek Vineyards:

Griffin Creek wines hail from a selection of estate controlled vineyards meticulously farmed at low tonnages. Within these plantings are an array of old, newly proven and experimental grape clones. Complexity is achieved by fermentation, aging and selective blendings of individual vineyards, blocks and clones.
