With use of 30% new French oak and the remainder in neutral barrels, this wine offers aromas of brioche, lemon custard and white flowers on the nose. The ample, rounded body is carried by a citrus vein that leads to a buttered-popcorn finish. There's just enough acidity to keep things lively and balanced.
Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. He prefers to focus on wines from Virginia, Michigan, Texas and other smaller U.S. regions, as well as domestic and international cider.
