Acreage— 2.25 year planted —1988
A hot and dry summer with drought-like conditions was followed by late season rainfall. Acidity levels dropped in many of the white varieties producing luscious tropical overtones. This variety was left on the vine until very late in the season, then hand-picked and pressed.
Food Pairing Notes
