The floral Sauvignon Musque clone, grown in our estate vineyards, comprised 29% of the fruit." Winemaker David Ready Jr. barrel fermented 89% of the wine, and a small portion (17%) underwent malolactic fermentation."

This wine demonstrates bright flavors of citrus, pear and melon with a elegant, rich finish.
