Very pale and clear in the glass with a slight green tinge. Aromas of cucumber, honeydew, peach, and green apple. Light and dry on the palate, with citrusy, bright acidity. Find flavors of lemon, lime, and apple, with hints of white pepper and river rock in the long finish.

The fruit was hand-harvested, sorted, whole-cluster pressed and the juice settled overnight. The juice was then racked and fermented cool in a stainless steel tank. After fermentation was complete, the wine was racked and aged on the fine lees until the following spring. The wine was lightly fined with bentonite and sterile filtered at bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve chilled with blue cheese, lobster, pork, seared scallops, sushi, or Thai. Especially good with hard to pair bitter vegetables, like asparagus or artichokes.
