Tasting Notes

The nose has lovely stone fruit aromas of peaches and apricots, with lemon meringue pie and candied ginger rounding out the fruit.

On the front of the palate there is a soft white chocolate followed by rich quince and tart kumquat rounded out with an herbaceous finish.

Food Pairings

Try a fresh ricotta seasoned with orange zest and honey to play with the crispness of this sparkling Chardonnay. Thai green curry with butternut squash or jerk chicken pair perfectly with the lemongrass notes in the wine. Cut through the minerality and acidity with the spiciness and fattiness of a smoky chile verde.

The spring of 2017 brought record rainfall to break the 6 year drought parching California. Late rains provided plenty of water to the vines for a vigorous start to the growing season. Throughout the growing season hot weather kept the grapes ripening quickly. A couple
of heat spikes during harvest created some anxiety, but fortunately we were able to pick all of the grapes at their optimum ripeness to produce outstanding wines from the vintage.
