Winemaker Taylor Berkley Boydstun Notes
This wine comes predominately from older vines planted in 1980 on the now little used AXR1 rootstock. The grapes were picked at lower brix levels, crushed, and left on skins to macerate for a day before being pressed and fermented in a mix of neutral French and stainless steel barrels. Aged on lees with routine battonage for four months, this wine has racy acidity and excellent structure with notes of jasmine, honeycomb and lemon curd. The lingering finish is reminiscent of old world Chenin Blancs, which were our templates.
