About This Wine:
Cultivated in the rocky soil of Arroyo Seco, these grapes were hand-picked at dawn and were still cold when they arrived at the Picchetti crush pad. The clusters were carefully placed into our small bladder press, and the free run juice transferred directly to a stainless steel tank for an extended 33-day fermentation and 7-months of aging. We avoided secondary malolactic fermentation, preserving the wine's clean, crisp texture, but the lees were stirred weekly to benefit its aromatic attributes. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered to further enhance its fresh natural characteristics. Pale straw in color with slight green hues, it has an elegantly refined nose with penetrating aromas of gooseberry, white florals and fresh herbal notes. Tropical flavors of pineapple, lychee and star fruit form an intense and concentrated core, and the mouthfeel is thirst-quenchingly dry with a fine textural line that lends vitality to the wine. Pure, focused and laced with complex minerality, the flavors carry through to a long, sustained finish. Serve chilled as an aperitif, with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 3-5 years. Another Picchetti first!
