Tasting notes

The wine’s complex nose is dominated by wet stone, tuberose and citrus blossom. The focused, saline palate shows energetic, flinty notes of green papaya and carries detail and density to a long, persistent finish.

Vintage Notes

THE 2015 VINTAGE at the Estate was 30% smaller than the previous year’s harvest. A late cool spring led to a very small crop set, while the heat of summer gave us one of our earliest harvests. Beautifully clean fruit was harvested August 25th.

HARVEST DATE : 8/25/2015

BOTTLING DATE : 8/16/2016
