Tasting notes

Bright and spritzy, with light aromatics of grapefruit, pineapple, and kiwi. Passionfruit, mango and lemon curd flavors burst through this well-balanced wine with bright acidity and hints of lime zest and tangerine on the finish.

Production

Vintage Notes

February saw abundant rains, followed by filtered light in spring and early summer. Bud break occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating a plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The mild summer was followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat, which allowed fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.

Viticulture

MILLER RANCH VINEYARD (100%)
Miller Ranch Vineyard is south of Yountville, nestled between the Napa River and Hopper Creek. The property was originally a wedding gift to David and Sarah Dunlap from Sarah’s Father, and was first planted to vine in the 1870s. The Miller family purchased the land and restored the vineyards for the Silverado estate in 1976.

 

Soils + Climate
Yolo Loam and Clear Lake Clay Drained soils are silty, cool and deep -- perfect for aromatic white wines. Open to the south, the vineyard enjoys the benefit of bay breezes and fog which contributes to the wine’s green citrus and melon notes and bright minerality.
