The Wine! This crisp, lovely wine offers fresh notes of ripe melons, peach and perfumed honeysuckle on the nose and palate with just a delicate kiss of sweetness. It is sophisticated and fun at the same time. A wine that the whole table can enjoy. This is NOT a Moscato or a Muscadine. This is a fine wine that is considered, "Off Dry", which means that the fruit on your palate is so bright it fools your senses into thinking that it has a some sweetness to it. It is a much more versatile food pairing wine versus a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay. The Cure!
2,400 foot elevation, crushed granite soil, south facing vineyard in the Sierra Foothills in California. High Desert. For about 7 months each year, the humidity is below 25%, diurnal temperatures of 93 daytime and 58 nighttime and almost no rain for the entire growing season. Perfect place to grow great wine grapes!
Winemaker’s Notes: Another long, hot and dry growing season on the Langman Estate vineyard in 2018. After a very wet winter the grapes matured very slowly and evenly into the end of September and well into October. There were many large fires across the state of California in 2018, but we were fortunate that the closest ones were 100+ miles away from our property.
Food Pairing Notes
Much wider spectrum of food pairing v.s. a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay.
What a great find! We are on a mission to introduce this Italian Varietal across the U.S.!
