Nose

The 2009 Querencia is bursting with aromas of wild berries, fresh orange and ruby grapefruit. The fruitful nose is complemented with notes of warm pie dough and candied almonds.

Palate

On the palate, there are flavors of tangerine, tart lime, and ‘strawberries & cream’. The wine finishes with a bright and crisp acidity that is long and refreshing.

Growing Conditions

Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. This vintage is sold out.

Harvest

Harvest Dates: August 31 - October 5, 2009

Winemaking

Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. Barrel Fermentation: 38%

Food Pairing

This brut rosé sparkling wine is hearty enough to complement the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.
