2018 was a cooler and late year, but we allowed more of the fruit to hang longer into the fall, resulting in a balanced and full wine. The moderate alcohol and mouthwatering acidity that is a trademark of that vineyard is very much present, balanced by a riper luscious creaminess.
The pH is 3.24, the TA is 7.7 g/l, and the alcohol is 12.2%. 3317 cases produced. CCOF Certified Organic grapes.
Golden Delicious apples, yellow peaches, musk melon, and honey on the nose and through to the palate, the medium acidity is balanced by pleasant fleshiness, finishing very clean with a hint of minerality. Refreshing and with moderate alcohol, this wine is all about pleasure, begging to be drunk up, with some oysters or a roast chicken and a big smile.
The vines were originally planted in 1989 by Beringer, and we’re proud to take our turn caring for them as the vineyard reaches a true maturity.
