Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

 

Fragrant nose of white lilac, star jasmine, frangipani, pineapple leaf, underripe banana and banana flower. Zippy flavors of pineapple, kiwi, honeydew melon, fresh green coconut, & sweet Meyer lemon, in a polished and refined style. Rich finish of melon and clove spice. Hedonic, yet also delicate and ethereal.  Nice viscosity and weight in a low-alcohol wine. A triumphant expression of the varietal, poetic, & evocative of springtime terroir.

"It was fermented slow and cold – with primary fermentation finishing around 4+ weeks. No oak – all in stainless steel and no residual sugar. Shows captivating aromatics including pear and apple. Very balanced across the palate with flavors of kiwi and gooseberry and a citrus zest. "
