Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Clean and fresh on the nose with notes of Meyer lemon and Asian pear. Crisp acidity on the palate is balanced with bright fruit notes of pear, Gravenstein apple and citrus and a refreshing, elegant finish.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and 100% whole cluster pressed then fermented for 30 days, 50% in stainless steel and 50% French oak. The wine saw full malolactic fermentation then sur lie for 7 months in a combination of French oak barriques and stainless steel.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 harvest was similar to 2015, although yields are slightly higher. Smaller than normal cluster and berries means more intense fruit flavors, and the cool, foggy late summer slowed the ripening and helped ensure full favor development. Overall 2016 was a very high-quality vintage in Sonoma Coast.
