Tasting Notes

Bright aromas of apricot, peach pie, orange zest, lemon meringue, creme brulee and fragrant spring flowers. The aromas translate to the palate, along with a decadent peaches and cream sensation. This is a rich, creamy wine with balanced acidity and a dramatically long finish.

Vineyard Designation

Catie's Corner

Vineyard Notes

The grapes used to make this wine hail from Catie’s Corner vineyard located in the northern area of the Russian River Valley. This famed growing region is famous for its relatively warm days and very cool nights attributed to a nightly marine layer pulled in from the Pacific Ocean. The Russian River’s much wider ancient route formed fine silty loam soils, perfect for high quality white winegrowing.

Production Notes

Whole cluster press to tank for a one-day cold settle. Racked off primary lees and inoculated with yeast and sent to neutral barrels for barrel fermentation. Fermented to dryness in barrel and aged for six months prior to bottling.

Pairings

Enjoy this wine with Seared Sea Scallops or Caribbean Spiced Roast Chicken

Ratings

90 Points "Given six months in neutral barrel, this is an effervescent, lively white, with tension and focus on the palate. Sweet peach, apple and mineral-like stone add to inviting aromas of white flower as the wine finishes dry and with power." Virginie Boone - Wine Enthusiast
