The 2021 vintage carries intense aromas of pear, orange peel, and white clover. On the palette, the chardonnay offers dry, mineral flavors of nectarine and fresh, green apple. 100% stainless steel fermented and aged, with 6 month of lees contact for an enhanced mouthfeel. It is satisfying by itself while also complementing cheeses or seafood.
Skipping Stone is a blend of Cayuga and Vidal Blanc. Very light in color, this wine is aromatic with a bright floral nose. It has delicious fruit flavors and is refreshing on the palate. It is off-dry with a nice balance of fruit and acidity. Skipping Stone is great by itself with cheese and like the Vidal is superb with spicy food.
Our 2021 vintage is a Ramato-style wine, which is made by allowing the juice to have skin contact prior to fermentation to provide color a normally white wine. Aromatics include guava, passion-fruit, and dried mango, with refreshing flavors of honeysuckle, peach, and apricot. The short grape-skin contact followed by Sur-lees aging lends this wine rich aromatics, with a gently-textured mouthfeel. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
