"This wine opens with layered aromas of jasmine, tropical fruit, fresh white peach and ripe citrus. On the palate, flavors of melon and ripe pear take center stage, framed by hints of mango, vanilla custard and wet river stone. A broad mouthfeel beautifully balances the juicy acidity.
The Monterey AVA consists of a long valley stretching from the uniquely cold Monterey Bay to the far Southeast reaches of the Salinas Valley. An ever-present breeze and maritime influence rise from the ocean cooling wide expanses of rolling vineyards. The fruit for this wine is sourced from multiple vineyards across the Monterey AVA, with vineyards located in North Monterey bring juicy fruit notes while the vineyards in the South bring riper fruit flavors.
Gently pressed to a mix of French and American oak barrels for fermentation. A small portion of the wine was racked to stainless steel tanks for fermentation which added an element of juicy acidity and aromatics to the finished wine. Lees were stirred monthly to increase complexity and mouthfeel. The finished wine was aged for six and a half months in oak barrels before final blending and bottling." - La Crema
