This Sauvignon Blanc possesses notes of grapefruit, citrus pith, and Granny Smith apple. The flavor is crisp and lean, with a zippy, citrus finish. Chilled, this wine is a perfect pairing with oysters on the half shell or a seafood salad.
Our winemaker, Eric Lyman, chose to produce this Chardonnay in the Chablis style, unoaked and vinified in stainless steel tanks. This process produces racy, green apple acidity and gives it versatility in pairing with different foods.
Aromas of green caramel apple and pear preserve continue as flavors onto the palate and are accented by baking spice notes at first sip. Flavors of spiced apple and creme brulee unfold into the lengthy finish.
This exotic dessert wine was made from Roussanne that was left to hang on the vine until mid November. Ideal conditions allowed for the growth of Botrytis Cinerea, which dehydrates the fruit and concentrates its sugars. The end result is a wine rich with aromas of honey-suckle leading to layer upon layer of dried apricot balanced by crisp citrus.
