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

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Stylish, with a pretty floral detail weaving in and out, adding a honeysuckle overtone to the succulent peach, apricot and lemon zest flavors, set on a smooth frame. Spicy accents show on the juicy finish. Drink now. 580 cases made." - MW (Issue May 31, 2020)
