Winemaker's Notes

A distinctive lime-citrus with tinges of meyer lemon, peach, almond and honeysuckle characterizes the nose.  Energetic with a mineral tartness, the wine tastes brightly of lemon, grapefruit and cantaloupe.

100% Melon de Bourgorne grapes. Grape sugars averaged 20.9° Brix when harvested September 9th from the Malivoire Estate Vineyard.  

Primary fermentation in stainless steel preceded settling and ageing in a steel tank with light lees contact. 

Bottling in December produced less than 30 cases available now.
