Due to high temperatures during the Summer months, all orders will be shipped using cold pack shippers to ensure that wines are not damaged while in transit. These shippers require a minimum of 4 bottles per shipment and we will only be able to ship orders that meet this requirement. Any orders less than 4 bottles will be held until they are safe to ship.
This wine is crafted from premium Pinot Grigio grapes grown on Turner Vineyard, located in the northern part of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. This wine, made in very limited quantities, was fermented entirely in stainless steel, then barrel-aged in neutral French oak barrels for 10 months and bottled in Spring 2017.
On the nose, tropical and stone fruits, white peaches, kumquats, red apples paired with honey, jasmine and wet earth/gravel. The palate gives more tropical fruits of banana and pineapple along with white peach, lemon peel, and fresh sage. Background flavors of lemon grass, mustard seed, and fresh cut lawn. A slightly creamy mouth feel is balanced with a core of tart acid that cuts through from start to finish.
Nose shows candied fruits, dried apricots, fresh kiwi, dried herbs and fresh-mowed lawn. Palate shows round and full in the mouth. Peaches and honey leap forward, mingling with marcona almonds, oregano, sea salt and quince.
The nose presents beautiful aromatics of honey, orange blossom, Asian pear, lemon curd. Crisp and dry on the palate, yet mouth-coating and lingering with lime zest, vanilla bean, and a chalky quality. Finishes with bright acid and lively minerality.
