Our 2016 vintage is a serious, expressive wine with a focused freshness and exceptionally long finish. A mélange of of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon on the nose leads to a dry, brisk,
beautifully balanced palate of green apple, blanched almond, yuzu, and a touch of mandarin. With a surprising mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and dusty minerality ride on a serious structure, the persistent, palate-cleansing finish lingering on.
2016 Harvest was a very nice, high quality vintage. We had a very mild growing season with lower than average temperatures in June and July, and very few heat spikes. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and consistently providing optimum flavor and development at harvest.
Food Pairing Notes
A wine with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with rich, creamy sauces or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, smoked salmon or lobster. And of course, wine-savvy friends.
