Inspired by the idea that less is more, this wine is more minerality-driven than fruit-driven. Not grassy or overly ripe, it offers up delicate fruit flavors with a crisp, bright minerality that calls to mind a first summer rain. Our grapes come from two family vineyards, and we harvest the fruit at just the right moment to achieve a balance of firm acidity and low alcohol.
With a pale gold hue, the 2015 vintage opens on the nose with the fresh, light scents of melon and white peach. A flintiness comes through on the palate—evoking the impression of a first summer rain—and an initial tartness carries throughout. Delicate flavors, along with the wine’s minerality, build toward a lingering finish, crisp and dry and calling you back for another refreshing sip.
