This wine was made from a blend of fruit from two vineyards located in the “Deep-End” of the Valley near the town of Navarro. Wiley and Klindt Vineyards’ close proximity to the Pacific Ocean lend bright citrus flavors and refreshing acidity to this delicious wine.
The fruit was harvested on September 20th at 23.1° Brix, whole-cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. The wine was fermented in both neutral French oak barrels (55%) and a 900-gallon French oak oval tank (45%) and aged for 5 months sur lie.
Floral notes of plumeria and orange blossom give the wine an intoxicating bouquet. In the mouth, the wine has a juicy freshness, with a tart quality reminiscent of lemon granita, and flavors of quince and pineapple. - Ryan Hodgins, Director of Winemaking
