Description

A field blend of Estate Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, whole cluster fermented and macerated on the skins for a little over two weeks. Huge mouthfeel, rich, creamy, dominated by butterscotch, honey and cooked apple. Some volatility that lifts the palate and aromas and a bit of tannin on the finish.

To date it has been in used oak barrels for 15 months and is still on its fermentation lees. It will come out of oak soon and will be settled in tank before being bottled. Anticipated release late spring/early summer.

We only made around 360 bottles of this very special wine, so pre-order soon because when it is released it will not last long.

We have not done final lab testing on this wine, but it is close to 14% alcohol. Its a bomb.
