Bright and mouth-filling, our Estate Luminesce displays expressive aromas of citrus blossom, key lime, and lanolin, accented by a warm, delicate spiciness. On the palate, fresh and crisp peach, Canary melon, and lemon tart pervade, with fine notes of exotic jasmine, building to a persistent, tangy finish.

Growing Conditions

An easy, mild growing season combined with low yields and a prolonged harvest resulted in wines with wonderful balance, color, and vibrant fruit. A normal but quick mid-April bud break was followed by warm spring weather. Freeze events in late 2019 lowered bud fertility, combined with rain and wind during June
bloom, which resulted in unusually low yields. Heat accumulation tracked the long-term average with veraison on time in early August. Harvest had just started when smoke from CA/OR wildfires first blew west into the Pacific Ocean then swept eastward into the Columbia River basin and was present from the second week of September for eight days. The stage of fruit maturity, exposure timing, and the nature of this (older) smoke resulted in a minor, negligible impact. However, diffused sunlight and cooler temperatures stalled fruit maturation, extending harvest timing into October. The long growing season combined with low yields resulted in wonderful balance, length, and aromatics in the white wines.


The grapes were harvested in the cool, early morning hours and promptly brought to the winery. The fruit was whole-cluster-pressed to tank and allowed to settle, limiting oxygen exposure for enhanced aromatics. The juice was racked to neutral French oak barrels where it completed a slow, steady primary fermentation, followed by a 100% natural malolactic fermentation.
ƒ The wine was aged sur lie four months in tight-grained French oak barrels, with a thorough battonage every two weeks, before being transferred to stainless steel for finishing. The wine was lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
