ABOUT: Our 2021 Heart is an exotic, symphonic white blend bolstered by aromatic bursts of Muscat aromas, fleshed out by the Pinots and Chard, with added verve, freshness and geometry provided by the Gewurz and Tocai Friulano.
VINIFICATION: The Chardonnay and the Muscat/Pinot Grigio/Pinot Bianco were all fermented ambiently/wild in stainless steel. The Gewurztraminer was also fermented wild/ambiently on its skins and the Tocai was inoculated and fermented separately in stainless steel. After eight months on their lees the wines were blended together into a stainless steel tank. Our 2021 Heart was bottled on June 9th, 2022.
TASTING NOTES: This is a complex and unique white wine full of deliciousness and life. The texture is plump and beguiling with cleansing acidity and a Long Finish. The aromas and flavors are piercing and range in fruit character from Citrus to Tree, to Stone to Tropical. The Muscat really promotes those Exotic, Tropical, alluring Aromatics. It can be hard to put the glass down. There is a generosity coupled with Raciness in this dry wine that is quite satisfying and keeps one coming back for more.
At A Glance - Fragrant White Tea, Quince, Lemon Balm, Medium Weight and Textured on the palate, w/ a Saline Mineral finish.
FOOD PAIRING: This wine will pair beautifully with so many foods from the bounty of our bays and ocean that offer up a plethora of Fish and Shellfish to fresh local Goat and Cow's Milk Cheeses. Simply prepared Summer and Autumn Veggies. Pastas, Poultry and light Pork and Veal preps. Our Heart would easily stand up to some lightly Spiced fare as well, so have fun and experiment with this one, you will love it!
