Tasting Notes

Winemaker's notes: "The 2015 leans toward the savory end of the Malvasia spectrum, with saline citrus pith and lemon curd, lemongrass, lime blossom and frangipani aromas further concentrated by another year of little rain and low yields. On the palate, this nearly 3-decade-old block on shale, clay and granitic soils focuses its tremendous aromatics in a beam of spicy intensity on a taut, persistent frame."

    The drought-ridden soils of California really started showing their presence in the fruit in 2015. Yields were lower and fruit more concentrated due to the lack of rain. This led to a richer, if more savory, profile for this wine than in other years. The shale, clay, and granitic soils are well showcased here, leading to notes of almonds, ginger, salinity and citrus blossom.
