This alluring blend of Viognier and Chardonnay draws you in with lively aromas of nectarine, lemon zest, Asian pear and white flowers. The dynamic citrus and stone fruit layers are echoed on the lush, creamy palate, where notions of honeysuckle, slate and wet-stone minerality add poise and sophistication to a long, vibrant finish.
The 2022 growing season began with some much-needed winter rain that provided moisture to the soils. A pleasant spring ushered an early budbreak, with some rapid cane development. In early May, there was an unusual cool spell which led to an extended bloom for our white varietals and early reds. Summer was very consistent and provided the prime growing conditions we so love here in Napa Valley, with harvest beginning on the 15th of August. This was followed by an intense heat spell at the beginning of September that resulted in great concentration of flavors. After the heat subsided, temperatures cooled, and harvest continued into early November, yielding grapes with rich, vibrant flavors and bright acidity.
