The fruit for this wine is sourced from Helluva and Romani Vineyards located at opposite ends of Anderson Valley. It is not unusual for these vineyards to be harvested a month apart. Helluva vineyard provides the tropical and herbal notes while Romani provides riper stone fruit characters. This wine shows aromas of peaches, lemon blossoms, and thyme. Mouthwatering flavors of guava and lime zest interplay with fleshy nectarine, peach pit, and bees wax with hints of lemongrass on the crisp finish. This wine was fermented in a combination of one third stainless steel tank and two thirds large format, neutral wood barrels allowing stirring and extended lees contact. Malolactic fermentation was avoided, and the wine was sterile filtered before bottling. No animal derived fining agents were used in the production of this wine. Try pairing this wine with butternut squash ravioli with sage and brown sugar or grilled cheese with fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced heirloom tomatoes and pesto. Cases produced 988, alcohol 13.1%, titratable acidity 6.1 g/L, pH 3.31, residual sugar 2.3 g/L.
