The 2019 growing season here in Pilot Mountain was marked by very little rainfall, warm sunny days with a constant breeze flowing through the vineyards. This ripened the fruit slowly and at the same time dehydrated the fruit slightly which reduced our yields, and in turn accentuated the fruit flavors and varietal characteristics. This crisp, clean, and refreshing. Equal parts of elegance and delicate aromatics offer pineapple, passion fruit & white flowers with loads of Asian pear, freshly peeled apple, and pineapple dancing on the palate. The finish is crisp and rounded with citrus and wet stone. This is very enjoyable wine alone and also pairs well with shellfish, white fish, chicken, roasted pork, pastas in butter or pesto sauces. This wine should be consumed within the next four to five years to savor the harmonious balance of fruit and acidity.
