The distinct terroir of the Finch Hollow vineyard is what Winemaker Consultant Dimitri Tchelistcheff believes contributes to the intense tropical fruit character of this luxurious wine. Barrel fermentation in new French oak and sur-lie aging add richness and texture to the palate. Lush floral aromas are complemented by ripe, mouth-filling, bright fruit. The sunshine yellow color is enhanced by a very light filtering and fining of the wine. The 100% malolactic fermentation and 9 months aging in new French Burgundy oak polish this elegant wine; it is sure to make those you share it with feel privileged. This wine was released in September 2012 and should continue to drink beautifully for four to six years.
