Notes from the Winemaker:
Immediately deep, complex, and layered with a dominant citrus focus when the wine is first opened. White Grapefruit, Key Lime, and a more subtle lemon meringue character all vie for attention. Subtle, yet classic, varietal grassiness emerges along with nuances of vanilla, woodsy spice, and creamy yeastiness. The palate is round and smooth, with viscosity counterpointed by refreshing, totally natural acidity. There is aseamless quality to this wine, where proportion and balance just flow from beginning to end.

THE VINEYARD
Semillon is this wine’s calling card, contributing richness and textural pleasure. Like the vineyards of Graves, the source of much-celebrated Bordeaux Blanc, and the model for this wine, the vines are planted in gravely soil along the bank of Dry Creek. The Alder Grove, ourvineyard’s namesake,provides shaded habitat for spawning fish, and the trees’ roots nourish the soils in which the grapes for this wine are grown. Pictured on the label is an Alder catkin, the tree’s flower that emerges just as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon berries first form in Quivira’s organically farmed estate vineyard.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points & #31 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"A complex note of dried honeysuckle and a whiff of smoke add intrigue and depth to the core of succulent peach, melon and mango flavors, set on a medium body, with a fresh frame. Shows wonderful purity of fruit and nuances that linger effortlessly. Drink now. 1,370 cases made." — MW

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wine has a nice layering of white peach and pea shoot and retains a light-hearted texture and body weight on the palate. It finishes grainy with a nutty element. Virginie Boone" - (2/1/2019)
