Sub Region: California

Bottle Size: 750 ml

Vintage Notes: The 2017 harvest was accelerated by a heat wave over Labor Day weekend, pushing up sugar levels and forcing Freelander to adapt quickly to rapidly ripening vineyard fruit. Prior to that, even summertime temperatures made for a nice growing season that was kicked off by a moderate spring.
Tasting Notes: This California wine shows good acidity and provides a nice balance to the ripe pineapple, pear, and passion fruit flavors. Just a hint of vanilla spice oak ends in a finish that’s clean and pure.
