Aged for 40 months in neutral French barrels (228L), thus offering complex aromatics of fresh D'Anjou pear and lemon rind accompanied by more secondary aromatics of fennel bulb, honeycomb, and golden fields of wheat. On the palate the wines layered with fruit, salt, and hints of butterscotch, offering a lovely versatility to enjoy.
Mocho Loam - this sandy, alluvial soil is fine-grained, fertile and deposited by water flowing from the Santa Ynez River. Due to their sandy nature, there is little water retention in these soils which creates higher aromatics and density in the fruit.
