CGT “Small Lot” wines are stylistic winemaker creations shaped by the growing season, fruit-style, specific vineyard blocks or simply a seasonal inspiration. They’re small production, high-quality and individualistic wines meant to be enjoyed with great foods.
Robust, spicy and aromatic, this white wine was made in a classic off-dry style. It offers fresh citrus, rose petal and ripe melon flavors matched with white pepper spice and earthy-mineral hints. It’s perfectly suited for zesty and flavorful dishes such as Indian Curry, Sichuan and Middle Eastern Cuisine. Serve slightly chilled.
We selectively hand-picked the grapes for this wine and traditionally pressed. It was cold-settled then inoculated with a strain of German yeast known to enhance fruit character. Half the juice was placed in seasoned Acacia barrels and allowed to ferment and age for 8-months to preserve spice, citrus and floral notes. The remaining juice was slow fermented in stainless steel at a very cool temperature to maintain aromatics, fruit character and mineral qualities. The finished wine was blended with a light touch of natural sweetness to enhance flavor and mouthfeel.
