Wine Details

“Gardenias are as pretty as they are fragrant and I chose one for the label in honor of my grandmother as this was her favorite flower. She couldn't resist the charm of those fluffy, creamy white blossoms nestled against a rich green base of sturdy leaves and planted many varieties in her flower garden. I have lovely childhood memories of her always smelling like them, intensely warm and sweet, the epitome of a long, dreamy summer. I think it was her perfume as well as the cut flowers she would bring into her house once blooming season started. I know she would have been so proud to see how far our little family winery has come and this is my way of making her forever part of it.”

Tasting Notes
“Delicate aromas of sweet melon, lychee, Meyer lemon, and vanilla laden whipped cream fill the nose of this elegant wine. Yellow peach, effusive honeysuckle and a hint of minerality round on the nose. On the palate, the wine has a fresh, clean and crisp attack with citrus flavors leading the charge. This beautiful freshness sits in a bed of rich texture provided by our "sur-lie" aging. The wine has a dynamic profile, finishing with a feeling that captures sunshine in a bottle.”
