Grapes were tank fermented and left sur lees until the point we could take 25% of the blend down to oak. Both tank and oak portions were left sur lees with biweekly stirring to enhance richness and mouthfeel.
Light bright gold. Pear and nectarine aromas show good clarity and pick up smoky lees and toasted grain nuances with aeration. Ripe tropical flavors of mango and pineapple with a firm seam of acidity wrap around the tongue suspending flavors well into the finish. There is a pronounced lushness to the wine that adds both weight and complexity.
