Our 2014 Naissance shows tropical aromas of pineapple, orange peel, grapefruit and orange blossom.
Full flavors of apricot and orange zest, with hints of dry grass. Complex fruit and naturally balanced acidity create an intriguing palate.
We pressed grapes for this wine at 50 percent whole cluster, and then settled the juice for two days before racking it into a combination of concrete, stainless steel and new and used French oak puncheons for fermentation. We aged the wine sur lie for five to six months, with batônnage (lees stirring) twice a week for the first three months and once a week for the last three weeks of aging. This fully integrated the lees for rich complexity.
Perfect for summer evenings al fresco.
