Wine ProfileAromas gently lift from the glass, followed by bright notes of lemon candies, evoking an image of a warm Sunday afternoon spent baking in the kitchen. On the palate, the wine follows through with a broad, mellow mouthfeel and hints of cake batter and lemon custard. A clean citrus finish leaves you wanting more.
Vineyard Description:Located north of the San Pablo Bay and straddling both Sonoma and Napa, Carneros is a region widely known for its sparkling wine production. The Tula Vista vineyard features a unique combination of heavy clay soils, both West and Northern exposure, and slopes facing the windy Petaluma Gap, which funnels a consistent breeze onto the vines.
Wine Making Info:The grapes for this wine were pressed onsite at the vineyard, then the juice was barrel fermented at cool temperatures in a mix of gently used French and American oak, then aged in the same barrels for 12 months before transferring to stainless steel to allow the wine a brief rest prior to bottling.
Recommended Food Pairings:Perfectly enjoyable on its own, fish dishes or a light olive oil based pasta with fresh vegetables would pair well with with this wine. Those with more of a sweet tooth may look toward light, citrusy desserts, such as lemon bars.
