Tasting notes

Aromas of apricot, white peaches, nectarines and passion fruit fill the glass with a touch of honeysuckle.  The palate is equally as fruity and enjoyable as the nose suggests with peaches and citrus flavors leading off and transitioning into honeysuckle.  This dry wine is balanced with a silky mouth-feel and a touch of acidity on the finish.  Layers of fruit unfold as one glass leads to another.  

Production notes

Harvest 2016

Much to the delight of both grape growers and winemakers, the 2016 vintage carried through from beginning to end, with ideal conditions and ideal results.  Long-awaited rainfall during the winter and early spring replenished desperate reservoirs and ground water, easing the concerns generated by several years' worth of drought conditions.  The summer was kind, with only a few heat spikes, which carried over into a true Indian Summer; keeping daytime temperatures above normal and the mornings foggy and cool throughout the peak month of September, permitting us to take our time in evaluating and calling picks at their optimal maturity.  Nature patiently waited for us to bring in our final lots before returning with the rain that has traditionally been the signal for the end of the harvest season.
