Winemaker Notes
The aromas are fresh and enticing with bright citrus layers supported by subtle undertones of papaya and green mango. On the palate, the tropical notes come to the forefront with rich, lush layers of guava, passion fruit and lychee, as well as hints of herbs and lemon zest.
The 2011 growing season was one of the coolest in memory. While unusual spring weather resulted in a smaller crop, the cool season was near perfect for developing pure, intense varietal flavors in our white grapes. Berries were small, and yields were down by 15 to 20 percent, adding to overall concentration and texture. The long, temperate growing season allowed the grapes to develop slowly, with all of our Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon coming in at optimal ripeness, and with excellent natural acidity, before the October rains.
