Ripe peach blossoms, coconut oil and white melon make for tropical aromas that are wrapped in a steely minerality on the nose of this blend of 48% Viognier, 25% Picpoul Blanc, 15% Roussanne and 12% Grenache Blanc. The palate balances between ripe peach and a chalky alkaline streak. - Matt Kettmann, Wine Enthusiast

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is a beautiful straw color and the nose is dominated by honeysuckle, flinty minerality, and subtle honey essences. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full and complex with flavors of tropical fruits, vanilla Asian pear, and stone fruit that mingle playfully on the palate. The finish is framed with firm acidity, minerals, and fresh fruit.

Vineyard Notes
Midnight Cellars was blessed with a good amount of pre-season rainfall for its estate vineyards in 2021. Much of the rain poured during a single storm in late October, sending both the vineyard and production teams in to overdrive for a short time. Although a mad dash was crucial in an effort to get the grapes off the vine, all other aspects of harvest 2021 went smoothly. Resulting in both good yields and quality, Rich Hartenberger and the Midnight Cellars’ team are confident knowing these wines are showing great depth of flavor at lower potential alcohol levels and well-balanced acidity.
