Heringer Family Vineyard enjoys the cooling breezes from the Sacramento Delta and has been in the same family since 1868/ Certified sustainable and herbicide-free, HFV pairs consistently warm days with very cool nights that allow for perfect growing conditions.
The grapes were picked early to retain acidity. The fruit is whole-cluster-pressed before cold settling in tank for 48 hours. Racked to neutral barrels for a cool and slow fermentation to complete dryness. After 8 months in barrel, the wine is bottled with minimal SO2. No fining, no additions, and only a light filtration on the bottling line.
This is an incredibly fun take on an easy-drinking Spanish white wine. The Muscat Canelli provides intense aromatics, with Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, and geranium on the nose. Peppermint and lime zest linger on an entry that brings to mind sipping sprite on the beach. Grated lemon and salinity complement a body that expands horizontally and includes fennel, citrus blossom, and Bermuda grass. Finish of grapefruit zest and stone.
42% Verdejo, 36% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Pinot Gris, 6% Chenin Blanc, 4% Muscat Canelli
