This elegant wine intrigues with
aromatics of lychee, white peach, and thyme.


The mineral‐driven, balanced finish is
preempted by flavors of pomaceous fruits, hazelnuts and honeyed phyllo dough.

Growing Conditions

 2012 has been described by many as “textbook perfect,” with both yields
and quality being well above average.  The growing season was long and mild, leading to even
ripening, and harvest was completed before the first storm of the season arrived in late
October.  The wines from 2012 are expressive, balanced and delicious!

 Whole cluster, direct to press, cold
