The excellent Medici vineyard supplies the fruit from vines approaching 30 years of age. It's a good Oregon rendition of a German Kabinett, quite tart and juicy with the alcohol at just 11%. Perfect for summer sipping, it's got a mix of citrus, white peach, gooseberry and surprise! —a streak of hazelnut on the finish.
