2018 Delice

Winemaker Notes The 2018 Delice is filled with fragrant white flower, orange blossom, dried mango, ripe peach, pear and candied lemonpeel. Bright, round and unctuous with layers of silky texture and a long, pleasing 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 2018 growing season in Napa Valley was marked by cool, mild weather. The cooler than normal spring delayed bud break, bloom and veraison by two weeks compared to the previous five years. The mild weather patterns in August and September allowed for excellent overall phenological ripening and development of a complex aroma and flavor profile.
