Brilliantly clear light straw with aromas of orange blossoms, white flowers, honeysuckle, lychee, and apricot. Followed by bright citrus notes of tangerine, star fruit and passion fruit. The orange, tangerine, and apricot flavors are brilliantly focused on the palate with a livery acidity that extends through the finish. Bright, playful, easy, fresh, and clean.
100% Russian River - Hill Family Vineyard
Great growing season for white varietals, a wet spring with rains stopping just at flowering set up an extended growing/ripening season with moderate temperatures 78-92° F day time temperature with cool night and foggy mornings, great for slow gentle ripening. Giving fruit expression and maintaining a brilliant minerality.
This wine for simple enjoyment. Light and refreshing a great way to start a meal, great with a summer salad with chunks of mango and smoked chicken or as an aperitif getting a the palate ready for heavier wintery meals. Very versatile and easy to enjoy.
Great with Indian Curries, Chicken satay, smoked trout, Thai cuisine, or roast pork stuffed with apricots. It also pairs well with smoked Gouda, provolone, jalapeño Jack or stronger goat cheeses.
