Aromas of under ripe strawberry, Bing Cherry, spring flowers and white peach. The palate is fresh and lively with a light bodied mouthfeel and crisp acidity. Pairs well with a sunny day.
The California Shenandoah Valley is the oldest growing region in the broader Sierra Foothills Appellation. It is the most western and least elevated of its sister appellations, and warm climate varietals benefit from substantial summer heat. The hilly terrain and poor water holding capacity produce wines of elevated richness and structure.
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.
Excellent with Salmon Eggs Benedict, a plate of melon & prosciutto or Steamed Lobster.
