$36.00   750mL
Sourced from the 18-acre Henry David Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Bennett Valley appellation, this small planting of Aligoté, less than one acre, is known to be perhaps only the third after Josh Jensen’s Mt. Harlan Vineyard. Thanks to the passion of the late Josh Jensen of Calera Wines, this obscure variety was brought to California and propagated beyond the limits of his vineyards.

A brilliant pale-yellow wine with golden hues. Possesses a delightful, yet discreet aromatic profile, with notes of white nectarines, unripe peaches, lemons, and kumquats. On the palate, the mouthwatering acidity is laced with abundant sour orchard fruits. The texture is absolutely clean, crisp, and refreshing with no signs of creaminess or toasty flavors.The approach is naturalistic with the wine being bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal addition of sulfur.
