86 Points, Best Buy - Wine & Spirits, 2014
NOSE: Opens with aromas of ripe pear, melon, apricot and accents of honeysuckle.
PALATE: Medium-bodied and well-balanced, this wine has a soft acidity, with hints of ginger spice and zest.
FINISH: A pleasing sweet finish.
COMMENTS: This wine is excellent when served chilled. It would be even more enjoyable paired with grilled pork chops and summer vegetables such as zucchini, spaghetti squash, and heirloom tomatoes.
WINEMAKER NOTES: Creating the Swanky White blend is always a pleasure and the harvest of 2013 was a winemaker’s dream, which made the creation of this wine even more exciting. The weather was perfect. There was heat when we needed heat, and rain when we needed rain, resulting in excellent growing conditions. The fruit held on the vine for a long time, slowly ripening while remaining healthy and very clean, until harvest.
