Winemaker Notes

We have loved aging more of this wine in neutral French oak—the most we have done yet in 2019 and I suspect more in the future. Picking late ripening vineyard sites for this wine means we have incredible natural acidity to balance out the texture that oak brings. The beautiful pale salmon we have come to know so well in color. Lemon rind, honey dew, and the smallest hints of lavender and thyme—reminiscent of some great spring and summer cocktails. Great, ripping acidity that finishes with a fresh texture, weight, and intrigue—an interesting combination of citrus and melon. Very exciting to continue to get better at even the “simplest” of our never simple projects!
