Aromas of gardenia, honeydew, white peach and lemon balm on thenose. Acidity on the entry leads to green apple freshness on the palate, and a touch of creaminess on the late-palate balancesthis multi-layered wine.
The vineyard sits at 2,000 ft. on highly eroded sandstone overlooking the Manchester plain in Mendocino County. Clones: OldWente, Dijon 76 and 809. Some skin contact and inoculation for the 809 clone, native fermentation in French oak barrels for theOld Wente and aging on the lees with early battonage.
