On the nose, sweet blossoms, pineapple, stone fruits and oak spice dominate the aromatic profile of our elegant White Gold. On the palate, it features a smooth, creamy texture combined with a crisp acidity. Coconut, sweet caramelized apple and pear flavours balance with very subtle oak notes. This luscious wine has a beautiful, long finish.

Dry Creek Vineyard
The grapes were whole cluster pressed to ensure that we extracted only the best juice from the berries. No hard press fractions were included in the juice that would ultimately become the 2017 White Gold. After settling the juice, the wine was racked into French oak barrels. Primary fermentation was achieved spontaneously based on native yeasts. This is a vinification method diversifies the microflora which create more complex flavours in the wine. The wine was aged in oak barrels until blending and bottling in the summer of 2018.
