Made by Martin Ray Vineyards from fruit from the vineyards of Santa Barbara County, Russian River Valley, and the western reaches of Mendocino County, for their Angeline range. These coastal regions similarly tend toward uniform daytime temperatures and cool, foggy nights throughout the growing season to help concentrate the flavour as the sugar and acids develop.

The juice has had a tickle of oak whilst resting in the winery.
Ripe Bosc pear, lemon mousse, and grilled pineapple with touches of honeysuckle on the nose. Subtle baking spices, sweet grass, a hint of quince paste and Tahitian vanilla overlay a broad palate framed by linear acidity and minerality.
This wine pairs effortlessly with fresh fish or veggie tacos and mango salsa
