GROWING SEASON:
2011 growing season was one of the
wettest in Oregon wine history. Many
winemakers shot the gun early out
of nervousness that the rain may keep
coming. Jeff took the risk to let the
grapes hang a bit longer, he knew the
brix of sugar would not rise in the cold
temperature but had hopes that with
more hang time that flavors would
develop. His risk paid off, in early
November there was about a week of
dry weather and we hit the crush pad
full steam ahead. Flavors developed
nicely, we were even impressed with
the results after such a cool weather
year.

TASTING NOTES:
Citrus aromas upfront with added notes of gooseberry and lemon zest.
Star fruit and pineapple at the close of the nose. Grapefruit opens in the
mouth with tropical notes mid-palate of passion fruit and more pineapple.
Nectarines and a touch of basil in the finish. Great with seafood, nuts a, goat cheese.
