Juicy aromas of tangerine with a hint of flint or wet stone. Light floral flavors, nice even balance of acidity and fruit with understated intensity. The finish is delicate and soft, quite quaffable.
After a relatively mild winter, a cool spring held back bud break and potential frost damage until May. These two factorscombined to set the stage for a fruitful vintage. The growing degree days (GDDs) were close to average through June andJuly but dipped in August. Rainfall was above average through
the growing season which increased disease pressure and cropload. However, because September and October were warmer and drier than average, the grapes had more time to mature and develop flavor. 2017 pulled off the seldom seen scenario ofhigh-quality wine in a high yielding vintage.
