Profile


TASTING NOTES

Pale yellow with a green tinge to the hue. Aromas of yellow peach, mango with a slight citrus note intertwine seamlessly with vanilla spice. The palate is rich and round, with the mango and vanilla fight for the lime light, while the creamy texture, vanilla and slight butter combine seamlessly. The balanced acidity closes out the finish bringing the multiple components into balance.


VINEYARD NOTES

The fruit for this wine comes from the famed Spring Rock Vineyard owned by the James family. Good rains in February lead to a warm summer, which then turned cool in August, resulting in a later harvest than the last few years. What followed was a long warm fall and near perfect growing conditions and extended hang time. In the end it was one of the longest harvests on record and also above average crop size. The fruit was hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard.


WINEMAKER NOTES

The grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed while the fruit was still cool. The juice was pumped to tank to cold-settle overnight before it was racked to barrel for primary and malolactic fermentation. The lees were stirred every two weeks to give the wine rich flavors and a creamy texture.
