2020 Delice

Winemaker Notes The 2020 Delice envelops the senses with aromatic white flower, tropical fruit and gardenias. Richly textured on the palate with tangy acidity, intense candied pineapple, ripe apple, guava and sweet honey that carries through to the lengthy finish.

Winemaking Data One of the few Scheurebe plantings in California, grapes were handpicked and frozen, followed by a partial thawing before a long, gentle pressing. The juice was fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature to retain the subtle aromatics of this variety.

Vintage Notes In 2020, bud break was slightly behind the five-year average, while bloom, veraison and harvest were consistent with the five-year average. 2020 was marked by very little rain accumulation throughout the year leading to drought conditions and above average temperatures during the summer growing months and harvest. Lower yields produced fruit with excellent flavor, intensity, and crisp acidity.
