Tasting Notes

Aromas of honeysuckle and lemon curd with a hint of orange zest greet the nose.

This crisp wine is beautifully balanced with bright citrus flavors, a hint of kiwi, and a creamy finish.

During the growing season of 2018 there was an increased amount of rainfall during the spring followed by occasional heat spikes during the early summer. Harvest began about two weeks later than in previous years but was more in line with timing from the years before the drought. The yields were extremely high and the fruit quality was excellent.
