What are Small Lot Wines? They’re stylistic winemaker creations shaped by the growing season, fruit-style qualities, vineyard blocks or simply winemaker inspiration. They’re small production, one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated
This robust and aromatic white wine was made with just a touch of sweetness. It offers fresh citrus, rose petal and ripe melon flavors matched with earthy-mineral hints perfectly suited for spicy and assertive foods. Pair with exotic dishes such as Indian curry, Sichuan spice, Middle Eastern cuisine or grilled root vegetables.
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.
