2020 Petite Arvine
Alder Springs Vineyard is known for producing exceptional fruit, specifically focusing on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Rhone red and white varietals on its 6,000 acre ranch (only about 140 acres are planted) in Northern Mendocino, just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean and ranging from 1,700 to 2,700 feet of elevation.
A beautiful pale golden color, aromatically quite subdued with subtle hints of minerals, melons, pears, and an indescribable alpine forest freshness. A palate of delightful elements and flavor compounds, ranging from honeydew, sour apples, sweet oranges, and herbs. A rare grape for California, it originally hails from the Vallais region of Switzerland.
