by Andrew Chalk


TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Light straw;


Nose: Lemon, green apple, white peach;


Palate: Delicious grippy texture. Flavors of honeydew, green apple, lemon. Medium-plus acid.


WHAT THE WINERY SAYS

Flavors of lemon curd and angel food cake, with floral aromas of honeysuckle, white peach on the nose, bright acidity, green apple on the finish.

Vineyard Notes 100% of the grapes for this wine come from the Nick Leras vineyard off of River Road.

Production Notes The wine was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to maintain the high fruit profile and to preserve and develop the esters and thiols that are characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was then aged in neutral oak to add to its complexity and mouthfeel.
