Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A beautiful golden hue.

Aroma: 

Aromas of citrus aromas of lychee and mango greet the nose. 

Palate: 

Green apple, pear and honeysuckle flavors are layered with notes of blanched almonds and accentuate the bright acidity in this beautifully balanced wine with a touch of minerality on the finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Heavy spring rains enriched the soils and delayed bud break by a few weeks. A heat spike in June, followed by warm weather, brought even veraison throughout the vineyards. A cooling trend and touch of rain in mid-September created ideal conditions for the 2019 harvest which is considered a near-perfect vintage.
