An assemblage of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sémillon, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling, the 2007 rewards with a complex bouquet of ultra ripe peaches, lemongrass, pineapple, honey, and spice. This vintage saw just under 20 months oak aging in barrels of a variety of ages, forests, and cooperages. Refreshing and balancing acid gives the wine structure and tension that leads to a long lasting finish.
2007 will be recorded by most as excellent though it is important to remember that not all grape varieties benefit from a hot, long, growing season. Bud-break was frost-free and flowering occurred under ideal calm. The summer and fall were seasonably warm and dry allowing for clean fruit and above average ripeness levels.
