2016 Field Blend

2016 Field Blend

Savor aromas of starfruit and citrus blossom

2016 was a fairly interesting vintage - very dry in the spring and early summer and so hot and humid in July and August. The fall rain presented a challenge in the vineyard but did not materially affect the harvest. Fruit was flavorful, balanced and ripe despite coming into the cellar with slightly lower brix levels than previous vintages.

Aromas of starfruit and citrus blossom. Flavors of fresh guava and a hint of crisp grapefruit zest. This unique blend is a highlight of all three white grape varieties grown on our waterfront property.
