SKU: LUMINOUS

The nose explodes with bright orange and apricot. The mouth-feel is lush and the finish is bright. We recommend serving this wine with salads, various types of pâté, or a slightly spicy seafood dish such as jambalaya or sushi.

Winemaker's Notes: This wine is the ultimate oxymoron; It's a planned improvisation. We always know what we want Luminous to be in terms of aromatic style and palate, but which of our vineyards the fruit comes from depends on how the vintage is developing. This wine is created by blending the juices before or during the fermentation for aromatic complexity. The blending for this wine always happens at the beginning of the process and is never an afterthought created from last minute blending.

Very good white wine. Not to sweet or dry. Just the right blend of flavor.
