Tasting Note: Fresh apple on the nose. The palate is smooth and juicy with peach and mango flavors. The wine shows a lot of texture with a nice balance and finish. Rich, fresh and generous. Drink on its own or pair with seafood (try ceviche!), poultry, spicy food and anything that inspires you.
Rusty Gate Farm is a 2-acre vineyard located in Russian River Valley. It is sustainably farmed alongside a peach orchard. I bought enough fruit from Rusty Gate Farm to make seven barrels. The result is so exciting that I am now committed to purchase all the fruit from the vineyard moving forward. 90 pts from Wine Enthusiast
