  • Vintage Report

    • The 2013 growing season will be remembered as relatively rainy. However, development of the vine was not hindered by the wet weather conditions. Budbreak, flowering and the beginning of veraison took place right on time. Mild temperatures over the summer months and ample hydration of the soil allowed for a slow and balanced progression of sugars and perfect phenolic ripeness. In general, harvest began a bit later than normal for the coastal vineyards. Good quality prevailed in the Prelius vineyard.

    • Harvest Date(s): September 27
  • Vinification

    • In stainless-steel tanks; 6 months on the lees; aged 3 months in bottle

  • Tasting Notes

    • Floral aromas merge with hints of racy citrus, pineapple and mineral characters, coupled with a soft marine influence. On the palette, it is a refreshing, elegant wine that retains a balanced acidity. The mouthfeel bursts with fresh fruit that lingers on the finish.
