Lush aromas of apple, pear, and fall spices lead to enticing flavors of baked quince, butter toffee, and candied orange peel on the palate, with subtle nuances of baking spice and a focused finish.
Following the very small harvest of 2015, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, with very fresh fruit aromas and flavors were evident in the whites. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like!—Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Food Pairing Notes
A beautiful, full-bodied wine to pair with turkey and dried apricot stuffing, butternut squash, honey glazed ham, or stuffed acorn squash.
