2017 Delice

Winemaker Notes The 2017 Delice is brimming with ripe pear, fragrant white flowers and chamomile followed by intense layers of peach nectar, lemon meringue and candied pineapple. Nicely textured with bright acidity and a honeyed finish.

Winemaking Data One of the few Scheurebe plantings in California, grapes were handpicked and frozen, followed by a partial thawing before a long, gentle pressing. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature to retain the subtle aromatics of this variety.

Vintage Notes The 2017 growing season saw much needed record-breaking winter rainfall which helped replenish our groundwater and the vines. The cool start to the season delayed budbreak and bloom in the Scheurebe blocks by two-three weeks compared to the three previous years; yet it was one of the earliest harvest dates in over a decade due to multiple heat spikes during the summer months and early September. Overall, fruit from our Home Ranch Vineyard showcased bright acidity and concentrated flavors in 2017.
