GRAPE SOURCE
100% WHITE BLUFFS ESTATE VINEYARD

Titratable Acidity 0.67 grams/100ml
pH 2.95
Alcohol 11.1% by vol.

Tasting Notes
Excellent varietal character with strong stone fruit aromas of apricot, nectarine, pear, peach and lemon citrus.  The palate is full and easy with balanced acidity and a dry, honeyed, peach and pear aftertaste that stays on the palate long after the initial taste.  The crisp acidity of this wine makes extended bottle ageing possible and its characteristic light kerosene aromas should be noticed within 2 to 3 years.  

WINE MAKING NOTES
Brix at harvest
 21.5
Yeast X5

Fermentation 
Grapes were harvested and processed through a mechanical destemmer for increased flavor extraction.  The juice was settled with enzymes < 24 hours and then racked to stainless steel tanks where a cool fermentation was performed for fruit retention.  Natural yeast-lees settling occurred for 30 days before the wine was filtered and bottled.
