Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has nice minerality and citrus fruit in the nose, as well as golden apple and pink grapefruit nuances, due to the cool vintage and the extended hang time. We used a lighter oak regime than in the past in order to showcase its beautiful elegance and silkiness. The bright acidity keeps the fruit and texture nicely in balance, and the finish is laced with vanilla and praline flavors.
