Guava, honeycomb, and apricot on the nose.

Growing Conditions

Our estate vineyard is located in the southern end of Napa Valley known for providing excellent growing conditions for white wines. Its proximity to the San Francisco Bay provides morning fog, creating ideal growing conditions to make a fully botrytized late harvest wine.

Winemaking

These grapes are left on the vine until 30 Brix. At this time, naturally occurring botrytis sets in the grape clusters, also known as Noble Rot in classic Sauternes production. The Botrytis produces luscious honey notes and mouthfeel which perfectly complements the grapefruit and delicate floral aromas of Pinot Grigio.

Aging

100% Stainless Steel

Food Pairing

Hard cheeses, strawberries and other fruit, blue cheese and honey.
