A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKER
My passion for white wine, no doubt, stemmed from my father’s distaste for it. It’s not that I set out to make white wine out of spite, but rather, he inspired me. You see, he claimed to only like red wine, so it became my goal to find balanced and interesting whites that he would like. It didn’t take long as he slowly began to appreciate the depth and complexity that carefully sculpted whites can deliver. When I was presented with the opportunity to make my own wine, it was an easy decision to focus on making white wines. These wines are not only for those drinkers that enjoy the nuances of a handcrafted white wine, but also for those who pretend not to.
Fresh and lively, this beauty offers aromas of stone fruit, Balsam fir and honeysuckle. The mineral laced palate oozes with Meyer lemon, quince and botanicals, while the finish perfectly balances richness and tension. Fermented and aged for 10 months in concrete tank.
This is an energetic wine, offering a highly pitched nose of lemon curd, flint, gardenia, white truffle, and toasted brioche. The attack is filled with white peaches, fresh pastries and citrus zest; leading to a surprisingly opulent mid-palate that is quickly focused by vibrant acidity and a briny finish.

This seamless beauty offers profound aromatics of Honeydew melon, gardenia and buttered brioche. Delving deeper, undertones of crushed rocks, tahini and flint come through. The palate is densely packed with flavors of apricot, muddled oranges and honey that give way to a penetrating finish making you pine for another taste.
