Glistening golden blonde hues are matched with inviting aromas of peach blossom and crushed pineapple. An absolutely charming density of richness and character combine with natural acidity and sophisticated minerality.
Dry farming showcases the density, layers and richness this wine is known for. The mid palate is loaded with lemon zest, clementine and sweet lavender. The flowing yet lush finish is stunning, showcasing rich undertones and structure of the vine age.
Our favorite history lesson of the Napa Valley, the hand planted ‘Old Vine’ Semillon of the historic Tofanelli farmstead lends stories of eras bygone. There is always intriguing sense in the Tofanelli Vineyard that shines differently each year. Organically grown, dry farmed and hand tended, this Calistoga gem yields some of the most rich and dense white wine in the valley. 2018 lent so much perfect weather and extended hang-time, it was easy to pick the perfect harvest date.
