Vineyard Notes: Grapes are sourced from a single 15-acre vineyard in the Los Chacayes IG in the Uco Valley wine region. The sustainably-farmed vineyard was planted in 2012 at 3,600 feet above sea level and is comprised mainly of calcareous river stones.

Winemaking Notes: The wine ages for 12 months, some sur lie in concrete tanks, and the rest under a veil of flor in barrel. 100% whole cluster stem inclusion.

Tasting Notes: The nose jumps out of the glass with notes of orange peel, apricot, candied peach, and tangerine all woven together with white flowers, lavender, and a touch of coriander. The palate shows good acidity to match the full body and finishes with honeydew melon and just a hint of flor.

    The 2022 White Blend Geisha de Jade comes from Los Chacayes in the Uco Valley. It is a 50/50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne that was 10% aged with a veil of flor. An autumnal green hue. The nose presents peach, green apple, hazelnut and cashew notes against a faint backdrop of acacia and chamomile. The palate is creamy and dry, with a fairly lean mouthfeel due to the veil enhanced by a tart, almost juicy texture before the lengthy, flavorful finish.
