Wonderfully vibrant and aromatic, with notes of lemongrass, passion fruit, and a hint of honeysuckle. Flavors of mango, fresh herbs, and white peach, come together seamlessly across a textured palate and lengthy finish.
The 2020 vintage will be remembered for warm summer temperatures and a cool fall that extended hang time to produce concentrated wines with balanced acidity. Bud break occurred
in mid-April. The weather was moderate throughout the spring before cooling significantly in early June. Warm weather returned in July to allow the vines to catch up to a “normal” season, then temperatures climbed in August
Handpicked grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed to ensure bright aromatics. After settling for two days, the clean juice was moved to one of four fermentation vessels where it remained for six months before blending. A combination of cement egg and stainless-steel drums was used to preserve the wine’s liveliness and minerality. New (21%) and neutral (60%) French oak barrels were also used to enhance mouthfeel and complexity in the finished wine.
