Elegant and straw colored, this racy single vineyard wine captivates with aromas of spring flowers and lemon peel. Notes of gravenstein apple, brioche and chalk emerge from a flash of focused acidity. On the palate it is bright and structured with a backbone of minerality supporting rich fruit and a long, creamy finish.
Farmed by Ned Yost at the famed Station Ranch Vineyard in Carneros, Sonoma.
Our grapes are harvested by hand, in the middle of the night, then brought to the winery in small bins to protect their fragile integrity. The clusters are then cold-soaked and allowed to ferment slowly over the course of several days. After a gentle pressing, the juice goes into a carefully selected mix of neutral and new French oak barrels. We bottle after 18 months in barrel, then age the wines for an additional year before release.
