 Bright straw color. Fresh melon, peach, mint and honey on the floral-accented nose. Supple and refreshingly dry, offering juicy melon and tangerine flavors and a deeper pit fruit nuance. Emphatically fruity on the finish, which shows a refreshingly bitter quinine quality.  (12/ 2013)

This is an incredibly refreshing and interesting white. Classic notes of white flowers and melon fruit, are complemented by a dense yet focused palate impression. Finishing dry with crisp acidity, this is a unique wine to add to your summer white rotation.

They said there's not a grape varietal that Kenneth met and didn't like. It's fun to be able to able to try an expression of Verdelho from Paso Robles. The wine is sourced from two different sites, one producing more citrus, brighter fruit notes while the other gives a more tropical, round mouthfeel. A very fun and different choice this summer for a refreshing white!

Fruit from Templeton Gap aged in stainless steel. This wine has great weight, with vibrant acidity cutting the ripe melon and pear fruit perfectly. Banana bread and almond are present as well, with a refreshing finish.

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Santa Maria/Santa Barbara

- Santa Maria and Sants Inez make up the two AVAs of Santa Barbara County, an area known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. The best grape-growing areas, however, are located on the very coastal reaches of these two appellations, and are cooled by ever-present fog and ocean breezes (it is even cooler and foggier here than Carneros!). As expected, chardonnay and pinot noir thrive while the more inland zones lay claim to Bordeaux varietals and some Rhône blends.
