Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of almond, peach and vanilla. Flavors of brioche, pear and gala apple
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this wine comes from a couple of different vineyards. One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz and is a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
The Chardonnay and Viognier lots were fermented and aged separately in tanks with gentle lees stirring to add richness to the wines. The lots were then blended together in tank and barreled back down for ageing in neutral French oak.
Winemaker Notes
2016 was quite wet in early spring making conditions challenging in the vineyard. July and August dried out and we saw good ripening and flavor development in both reds and whites. Merlot, Cab Franc and Chardonnay stood out.
