Luna Vineyards 2013 Pinot Grigio

Blend: Pinot Grigio 90%, Chardonnay 8%, Viognier 2%

The 2013 vintage was a perfect growing year due to idyllic weather conditions. Our Pinot Grigio grapes were whole-cluster pressed on the same day that they were picked. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve the delicate fruit aromas and each vineyard lot was kept separate until just before blending and bottling.

Tasting Notes: Fresh aromas of honey, lemon curd and citrus blossom greet the nose. Bright grapefruit on the palate, our 2013 Pinot Grigio has a refreshingly brisk citrus, lively texture and good balance. With the dominance of citrus zest and a steely edge, this wine finishes with a juicy acidity and bright, long finish.

Arnold Palmer 2013 Chardonnay

Blend: Chardonnay 100%

The 2013 Arnold Palmer Chardonnay is a vibrant wine whose grapes were sourced from vineyards in the cooler climates of California.

The wine then went through the traditional secondary malolactic fermentation and was cellar aged, a portion in oak barrels. Finished by blending in late spring and bottling in August 2014.

Tasting Notes: The cool climate grapes show through with a burst of lemongrass and honeysuckle aromas, along with bright lime zest. Richly flavored with baked green apple flowing to a creamy and fresh pear completion.
