"I swallowed it before I put the glass down. There wasn't any opportunity to spit."

About This Wine

TASTING NOTES

Everyday is a white wine blend crafted from some of the Central Coast’s finest fruit. These crisp, fragrant wines are all cold fermented in stainless steel, with quick stabilization right before bottling to preserve fresh-ness. A bright and aromatic wine, with fresh floral, citrus, and ripe honeysuckle notes that give way to zesty fruit flavors.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The 2013 growing season on the Central Coast was dry, starting in early spring and extending throughout summer. The typical winds that they get coming off Monterey Bay and going into the Salinas valley brought wet foggy nights in the 50’s, but the days were a little hotter than normal. Still dry conditions through flowering made for great fertilization resulting in full fruit clusters and a heavier than normal crop. Throughout summer it was a little windier and cooler than normal in the north but very hot in the south. Harvest started almost a month earlier than average, but temperatures dropped a little during harvest time, and so with no rain the harvest extended all the way through November. The flavor development and lack of pressure to pick on the Central Coast made for some very expressive and balanced wines.
