Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice transferred into both new French oak (20%) and stainless steel barrels (80%) for fermentation. We repeated the “sequential fermentation” technique we experimented with last year, this time on the whole lot. Basically, we get the fermentation started with one yeast and finish with another, optimizing flavor, complexity, and texture. The wine remained in barrel on primary lees until late February when it was racked and bottled.

Tasting Notes:

Intense and distinctive, aromatics include pineapple, green mango, guava, white nectarine, honeydew melon, lemon curd, orange liquor, white pepper, sandalwood, rose water, and beeswax. Savory and mouthwatering, with a concentrated, long finish.
