Wine Maker Notes
The protected in-land valleys of California get plenty of sunshine and the Guenoc Valley is no exception. Every day during the growing season, temperatures fluctuate nearly 50 degrees from a peak of nearly 100°F down to 50°F at night. The warm temperatures ripen the fruit and allow the pyrazines (the cut grass, green pepper or jalapeño flavors) to change into tropical notes, while the diurnal low temps keep the acidity bright. Warm climate SB has all the pineapple, guava and mango of a fruit smoothie!
