91 points - Wine Enthusiast

This is a beautiful, high-toned aromatic white wine with layers of lemon verbena, rainwater, finger lime and white grapefruit.  With bright acidity and persistent length, the palate is fresh and crisp offering a slightly round mouthfeel due to complete malolactic fermentation alongside hints of wet stone and crushed rock minerality.  A long, cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by four months of maturation and the wine is then bottled early to preserve CO2.

Technical Information:

Linne Clay Loam - this whitish gray soil contains limestone pieces beginning 18”-24” below the surface.  The presence of limestone captures and preserves the freshness in this wine, and being a heavier soil lends itself to a rounder mouthfeel.
