Vineyard Notes:  Hand-picked at night to seize the fruit at a lower temperature, all grapes went direct press as whole clusters. After pressing and settling the juice was racked to barrel for fermentation at 50-55F. Once dry and complete with malo-lactic fermentation the wine was Sur lie aged with biweekly bâtonnage, and aged in barrel for 12 months in 50% NEW French oak barrels prior to bottling.  Rudy von Strasser has been named by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of the 2014 Wineries of the Year.He graduated from the UC Davis Winemaking Program in 1985, and began an internship at Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. He later worked as the Enologist at Napa’s Trefethen Winery and at Newton Vineyards as Assistant Winemaker. Rudy von Strasser began his own winery in 1990.”

Winery Tasting Notes:  “A full flavored, rich textured wine. Light tropical fruits complement white peach and ripe nectarine with a lovely hint of vanilla and sweet oak. The palate is long and has a wonderful acid line, with lemon meringue and citrus zest on the finish.”
