This brilliant green-straw colored wine is brimming with tropical freshness. The aroma is reminiscent of citrus fruits accompanied by notes of honeydew melon, white peach, green apple, kiwi and a hint of lemongrass. Flavors of citrus, melon and green apple mingle in perfect harmony. This wine has balanced fruit and brightness, refreshing acidity and a long, clean finish.

Vineyard Notes

Freemark Abbey Wilson Ranch Vineyard – St. Helena (49.6%): Rich clay loam soils, adjacent to the Napa River.

Yount Mill Vineyard – Yountville (42.6%): An organically farmed vineyard, located in the heart of the Yountville Appellation, west of the

Napa River. The soil is a rich clay loam, producing grapes with typical varietal flavors of honeydew melon, citrus, lemongrass, and a sweet note of freshly cut grass.

Oakville Reach – Lower Cardinale Vineyard – Oakville (7.8%): Predominantly rich clay loam soils. This newer vineyard is located beside the Napa River.


Production Notes

Abundant winter rains helped refresh the groundwater and our reservoirs after several years of drought. The vines responded to the moisture with abundant growth. The summer had a few heat spells, during which we employed shade cloths, water and canopy management, to preserve the fruit. The harvest was warm and came a bit early with slightly below average yields.
