This vintage was sourced from a number of coastally inf luenced vineyards ranging from Monterey County to San Luis Obispo. The common theme amongst these vineyards is cool climate, elevated sites with well drained sedimentary soils and naturally limited yields.
Tropical notes of juicy Mandarin, ripe kiwi and papaya are highlighted by aromas of lemon drop, apple blossom and refreshing minerality. The palate supports the nose, revealing the Stainless winemaking with its round, weighty mouthfeel. Crisp acidity and flavors of white nectarine, mango and key lime pie filling round out the clean, lingering finish.
