The fruit was grown in various vineyards of Sonoma County, including Russian River and Dry Creek Valley. Lots were whole-cluster pressed and vinified separately prior to blending.
It’s a style that walks the line between the tropics and the cooling north. Aromatically I find notes of melon and citrus, lime peel and gardenia, while the acid backbone offers good freshness and linearity. Flavors of white peaches soaked in citrus juice enliven its mid-palate, and the finish offers that musky, citric goodbye so characteristic of this grape.
Ripe but not too. Pair it with goat’s milk cheeses, salads, white fish, and light pastas.
