Wine Profile

Tasting Notes This wine is an uncommon blend of varieties, each with its own distinct ‘personality’. Each component contributes with its unique signature quality. Viognier, with its ripe, tropical fruit flavors (bananas and guava) dominates the aroma while the Pinot Gris imparts a more floral, estery character, The lightly oaked Chardonnay binds them together providing a touch of drying tannin. On the palate, the wine is rich and soft. There is a ‘fleshy’ character that is both mouth-filling and lingering. The natural acidity is low enough to maintain the wine’s soft appeal but present enough to ensure the wine remains fresh. All the fruit was harvested from our estate vineyards on the Central Coast of California and reductive winemaking techniques are employed to guarantee the preservation of the more subtle fruit characters and aromas. A great wine for a whole range of foods from salads to seafood and chicken to chili.
