A blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier from vineyards in Clarksburg in the Sacremento River Delta region of Napa Valley, California.
Fruit was destemmed and crushed, and the free-run juice was combined with the press fraction to increase mouthfeel. Two different types of yeast were used to add complexity and aromatics. Fermentation was cool at about 13ºC. Aged in stainless steel tank without malolactic fermentation to retain pure varietal fruit characters.
The newest release of this intriguing blend delights the nose with a charming bouquet of enticing aromas of fresh lemon, peach, ripe melon and yellow plum, mingled with touches of citrus blossom and white tea. The clean, vibrant palate enters with juicy pomelo, sweet lychee and honeyed tangerine fruits, balanced by vibrant acidity and hints of yellow apple and key lime pie that last through the crisp and refreshing finish.
