Tasting Note

A mélange of of fresh cut flowers, key lime, ginger, and honeydew melon on the nose leads to a dry, brisk, beautifully balanced palate of green apple, blanched almond, yuzu, and a touch of mandarin. With a surprising mouthwatering complexity, its bright, crisp fruit and dusty minerality ride on a serious structure, the persistent, palate-cleansing finish lingering on.

Food Pairing

A wine with such textural vibrance and intriguing tension pairs beautifully with rich, creamy sauces or foods with a natural voluptuousness such as raw oysters, smoked salmon or lobster. Incomparable with wine-savvy friends.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
Pinot Noir
In France, makes a silky, deceptively powerful wine of elegant, complex aromas and subtle, red fruit flavors, with earthy, floral, mushroom and mineral notes. In California, shows ripe, sweet characters.
