Tasting Notes

Crisp and refreshing.  Aromas of citrus, apricot and peach.  Good acidity and a touch of minerality makes this wine easy and fun to drink.

Winemaking

The fruit was gently destemmed before being pressed.  Cold settled for two days, then racked and inoculated with yeast.  A long, cool, controlled fermentation to dryness.  Post fermentation, the wine was stored in stainless steel and did not go through malolactic fermentation.
