A solid effort from a well-balanced vintage, this is whole-cluster pressed and largely fermented in stainless steel. A percentage went into neutral oak, and none went through malolactic. It's a clean, honest style, that confidently displays the fruit flavor of the grape—a juicy and refreshing mix of apples, white peaches, melon and spice.
