Ripe gooseberry, cut grass, white peach, elder flower, and struck flint aromas. Textured mouthfeel with Meyer lemon curd, white peach, grapefruit on the palate. Soft mid-palate with lip smacking acidity. Incredibly reminiscent of Sancerre.
Sourced exclusively from the Three Little Bears vineyard on Old Mission peninsula.
Settled for 48 hours and racked to a neutral oak tank for fermentation. After fermentation, racked on gross lees to a blend of used French oak and acacia barrels for aging. No malolactic fermentation.
