Winemaker Notes
From its vivid golden-green color to its delicious aromas of crisp apple and ripe cantaloupe, this wine offers a beautiful combination of freshness and vibrancy. The fruit notes are supported by excellent acidity, which add tension and focus throughout, leading to a satisfying finish with hints of caramel and rose petal.
Production
The 2011 growing season was the coldest in the 15-year history of Goldeneye. In the vineyard, we benefited from our experience as cool-climate winegrowers, and the exacting control we are able to apply to our Estate vineyards. We adjusted practices to compensate for the weather, with extra leaf pulling and vineyard-floor cultivation. We also did extensive fruit drops in multiple passes to encourage complete ripening, with overall yields of approximately 2 tons per acre. The long, temperate season allowed for extended hang time, and the majority of our grapes were harvested before the rains. The resulting wines are bright and elegant with slightly lower alcohols, lovely aromatics, natural acidity and pure fruit flavors.
