A youthful wine with a delicate entrance that rounds on the mid palate and a refreshing acidity that carries through the finish. Take in the bright citrus and honeysuckle notes complimented by green apple and a lingering minerality.
Fermented in 100% stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks with native and cultured yeasts and sur lie aged for two months prior to bottling.
The 2013 growing season began with a warm spring which allowed early growth to progress nicely. Budbreak and bloom occurred ahead of the area average and the pleasant spring progressed into a sunny and mild summer. Near ideal conditions for most of the summer allowed vine growth and grape development to progress rapidly. Brief rainfall in August dissipated quickly and the weather remained superb until late September when harvest was temporarily halted due to heavy rains. Prior to September rains, the long summer allowed grapes to ripen nicely on the vine, and after the rain subsided, the warm summer weather returned through the rest of harvest.
