Winemaker's Notes:

Zesty notes of citrus such as lemon, grapefruit and orange peel fill the glass. On the palate, this wine shows the same profile along with a well-balanced minerality that leads to a crisp, clean finish. The perfect addition to any warm, summertime day.

About Lockwood:

Located in Monterey County, on a 1850 acre parcel of calcarious soil (called "Lockwood Shaly Loam"), Lockwood Vineyard was planted in 1981, and started producing in 1989. Lockwood is dedicated to estate bottling and, as winemaker Stephan Pessagno puts it, "wine that is fruit-forward, has good acidity and balance, and complements the best of life's food and wine experiences." The temperature fluctuations-morning temperatures can be 50 degrees and mid-day temperatures 100 or more degrees-make Lockwood able to mature both cool climate and warm climate grape varieties with unprecedented success.
