Winemaker's Notes:

Relying on naturally-occurring yeasts, we fermented 80% of the grapes in 900-gallon French oak casks, called foudres, with the remainder in previously-used small French oak barrels. We then aged the wine six months on its lees (the spent yeast) in neutral barrels. The combination of the right clones and cool growing region produced crisp flavors of Meyer lemon, white peach, and dried apricot with mineral notes that are perfect with a wide range of food, including grilled fish, goat cheese salad, and spicy Mexican or Asian cuisine.
