Yellow fruit, lemon curd, and yellow cake mix. Smells of stale lemon bars and pie crust. On the palate the body is round and lush with some baking spice and citrus that work well together.
With no land, grapes, winery or employees to call his own, winemaker Kenny Likitprakong considers himself a “hobo winemaker.” But he doesn’t let that get in the way of him making wine. Instead, he leases vineyards from other winemakers and produces the best wine possible using organic and sustainable farming methods. The grapes used to make this white blend come from all over California, keeping with the “hobo winemaker” theme, but are blended together to make a bright white wine.
Robust on the palate, smooth and sleek. Bring this bottle to a dinner party or a family gathering, and its dynamic characteristics like its crisp citrus notes, its rocky minerality and kiss of spice will be a hit. The wine has a nose of clean and yeasty notes that are stacked with layer upon layer of jasmine and beaming bright citrus. Silky on the palate, this medium-bodied white is great for the winter months, but it would also do well with food in the summer.
