Juicy nectarine and crisp gala apple blend with a zesty lemon on the front palate. Lively tropical fruit flavors of mango and pineapple follow on the mid-palate. Creamy and rich with well-balanced acidity that drives a lingering finish.
The 2018 vintage started with a very dry winter with above normal daytime temperatures. In March, a series of winter storms brought much-needed rainfall to California. Summer quickly transitioned to very warm weather.. and the grapevine growth was vigorous and healthy. Even though the growing season was relatively cool and quite variable, the grapes matured uniformly and developed brilliant colors and flavors while retaining their natural acidity. We began picking the fruit from the vineyards in mid-September and harvest was completed by the first week of October.
