Our 2014 Luckystone White opens with grassy herbal aromas and pineapple marmalade. The palate, medium dry with flavors of mango and persimmon, is rounded out by white flowers and clove.

Winemaker Notes

The Chardonnay was hand-harvested on 10/10/14. Fruit was crushed, destemmed, pressed, and settled for 2 days, then warmed to 60°F before inoculation, then fermented for 16 days. No oak or malolactic fermentation was used.

The Pinot Gris was machine-harvested on 10/06/14. The fruit was crushed, destemmed, and the juice was fermented in tank for 14 days.

The Riesling was harvested on 11/14/14.  After it was crushed, destemmed, pressed, and allowed to settle for 4 days, the juice was racked, warmed, inoculated, and fermented for 68 days.

The Gewurztraminer was harvested on 11/4/14.  The fruit was crushed and destemmed, and left to cold-soak in bins for 1-2 days. Everything was pressed on 11/5/14. The juice was warmed and inoculated, and fermentation continued for 19 days.

The final blend was assembled in May of 2015.

329 cases produced.

 

Food Pairing

Enjoy this lively blend with persimmon or roasted cinnamon pear bruschetta, featuring goat cheese, ricotta, or marscapone. Penne with fresh spring asparagus and pesto or ratatouille would be ideal pairings for an al fresco meal.
