This 4th vintage of our High Country White sees Arneis taking the driver’s seat, and Grenache Blanc riding shotgun. Fiano and Picpoul figure prominently as well, while touches of Sauvignon Blanc and Vermentino elevate the final blend. Subtle chamomile and lavender aromas lead to hints of lime, flint, salty ocean breeze, and a whiff of cotton candy. Light-to-medium bodied and very refreshing, more lime joins pears and apples on the mid palate. The finish is long, layered, and tamed by bright acidity that first livens then washes away…only to return again.
