Winemaker Mike Grgich Notes
We fermented 80% of the grapes in previously used small French oak barrels with the rest in 900-gallon French oak casks, called foudres, using only naturally-occurring yeasts. We then aged the wine six months on its lees (the spent yeast) in neutral barrels. These techniques add body while showcasing the wonderful fruit, not masking it behind new oak. The wine’s mouth-watering acidity and elegant flavors of tropical fruit, lemon grass and a touch of mineral at the end of the long finish are perfect with grilled seafood and chicken, creamy pasta dishes or summer salads.
