This exquisite wine has lively citrus notes
complemented by white floral aromas.


The palate exhibits harmonious flavors of honey-crisp apple
and lemon with mineral undertones, buoyed by vibrant acidity for a long finish.

Growing Conditions

The 2015 vintage began in late winter due to unseasonably warm temperatures
leading to an early bud break, and thus an elongated growing season. Overall yields were
lighter than average with smaller cluster and berry size as a result of cooler temperatures
during bloom and the third consecutive year of drought. The resultant wines show increased
concentration of flavors with wonderful balance and round textures.
