Product description

This is the first commercially produced still white wine from Cabernet Franc grapes. The fruit was gently pressed and immediately removed from the skins to avoid the influence of pigment and tannin contained in the skins. The juice settled in tank for 24 hours, then was transferred into neutral oak for barrel fermentation. The wine was transferred once more into stainless steel drums and stirred on the lees to augment the natural acidity and fruit flavors, and to add richness and a salinity to the finish. Fined with naturally sourced bentonite. Delicate nuances of “early blush” apricot, golden raspberries, Meyer lemon, blood orange, white tea leaf, tarragon, and hazelnut add to this, pretty, complex white wine from red grapes. Drink now for freshness, but this wine will age in the bottle for a couple years from the initial phenolics provided by the red skins. 90 cases made, 12.5% alcohol. About the Producer
