Together they have developed some of the most renowned growing sites in Sonoma and have put into place meticulous winemaking techniques that highlight the unique character and intense expression of the region.
This wine shows yeasty cookie dough, piecrust and lemon blossom aromas. Tropical fruit and zesty citrus are highlights of the palate. There are light flavors of vanilla amid a balanced acidity that shows a Chablis-like character.
Pair it With:
The best food pairings with this wine will take advantage of its naturally high acidity which can act as a palate cleanser and work wonders with delicate, creamy sauces. Due to its lighter, more delicate profile, we recommend sticking to lighter meats and fishes including chicken, quail, trout, bass, halibut, cod, clams or scallops.
