Ripe peach and tropical pineapple create candied sunshine! A little lushness on the palate with a soft, crisp finish show how perfectly balanced this wine is, with the scales tipped just a little toward the sweet side. This wine is the liquid epitome of summer.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Fouch Vineyard is located about 1.5 miles south of our farm on Smokey Hollow Rd. Dan and Mary Ann Fouch planted 2 vineyard blocks in 2006 and 2009 totaling about 5 acres. The blocks have different soil profiles, slopes, and Riesling clones, which provide us with a unique blend of flavors and aromatics.
Production Notes
The grapes were crushed and allowed to soak for 24-30 hours of skin contact to enhance the aromatics. The must was divided between three stainless steel tanks, and each was inoculated with a different yeast strain to create different yet complementary fruit profiles. Fermentation in each tank was stopped at a different sweetness level, and the final blend was made in February 2017 prior to bottling.
