**This Wine is a blend of Russian River Valley Vineyards from the heart of Russian River Valley to the Western Edges of Green Valley touching Sonoma Coast. The variety of growing sites add layers of ripeness, fruit flavors and complexity**
Gold Color with green tints. Pronounced lemon citrus core with tree fruits of pear and crisp apple lined with a floral note of jasmine. Citrus and tree fruits are complemented by a hint of brioche and toast. A round, elegant mouth feel with perfect balance leads to a lingering finish with a touch of minerality.
Pairs well with shellfish, cream sauces, roasted chicken, fish, and zesty grilled vegetable dishes as well as mild gouda and soft cheeses.
Fruit was hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off the heavy lees and split between stainless steel and barrel fermentation to highlight flavors. Fermented between 65-72° F with mostly native yeasts, followed by lees aging and light lees stirring for 4 months.
