From Evergreen vineyards. This is all stainless and rather sweet, touching 4% residual sugar. Despite that, the underlying acids keep the wine reasonably crisp and buoyant. Flavors of cotton candy, strawberry lollipop and sweet watermelon make this a perfect summer sipper.
Firm, with herbal flavors of olive and some interesting violet/floral highlights that carry into lightly plummy fruit and chocolate. After a promising start, the flavors quickly tail off, and the wine finishes smooth but muted.
It’s uncertain how old this “old vine” fruit actually may be. Barrel-fermented in neutral oak puncheons, this is a rather soft, neutral white wine, that could pass for a Trebbiano or something similar. There’s a hint of almond along with some alcoholic burn in the finish, which nonetheless retains a crisp aftertaste, but otherwise there is not much flavor.
