GOLD MEDAL - 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
This Castello Estate vineyard is located just south of the town of Boonville in Anderson Valley, a coastal valley region famed for Burgundian and Alsatian varieties. The vineyard was planted in the late 1990’s to Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling.
A succulent and deliciously spicy white wine loaded with aroma and flavor, made in a "Noble Rot" dessert, or very sweet, style.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal with after dinner desserts of chocolate torte, crème brulee or baked fruit with an artisanal cheese selection.

I just loved the terrible sweetness of this wine against my usual spicy fare. Also you don’t realize the elevated alcohol content of this late harvest wine until you have a very happy buzz from your meal.

Fantastic dessert wine! Paired it with sea salt chocolate for a delightful combination!
