Fragrant and succulent with a floral accent, ginger, lime, honeysuckle and peach blossom. Fruity and rich with flavors of passion fruit, tangerine and citrus that mingle in the mid-palate showing of elegant style with a natural acidity which refreshes the long finish.
This was a cooler year with abundant rain in February followed by endless sunny days which produced bud break in the first and second week of March. The mild temperatures allowed for slow ripening-perhaps the longest duration we’ve had in a long time. This factor helped encourage even cluster development, strong yields, complex flavors, high acidity and excellent quality that will help contribute to the longevity of this vintage.
