Layered aromas of melon, golden apple and papaya kick off the nose for our 2022 Serenity White Blend. The palate is fresh and vibrant, with flavors of passionfruit, sweet pineapple and a touch of citrus. This wine is perfect for enjoying on warm summer days with a group of friends.
Our home ranch on the west side of the High Valley AVA has been known as “High Serenity
Ranch” for over one hundred years. The blocks planted to this idyllic site include Pinot Gris,
Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Gewürztraminer. Each block is comprised of ancient lakebed
and alluvial soils from the surrounding mountain range. The transverse valley winds create some
of the coolest sites in Lake County. The lower temperatures on the valley floor allow for diurnal
temperature swings of more than forty degrees, enhancing flavor development while retaining
a crisp acidity

We harvest our grapes early in the morning to ensure peak acidity and freshness upon arrival to the winery. After gentle pressing, we allow the juice to cold settle overnight. The next day we rack the juice off heavy lees and ferment in small stainless-steel tanks. Sur lie again with battonage (lees stirring) once a week in tank creates additional body, texture and viscosity in the wine. Each varietal is fermented and aged separately before blending to create the optimal flavor and aroma profile for our white lend. This wine was aged 9 months, lightly fined and filtered before bottling for maximum freshness and clarity.
