The aromas echo the palate, which offers flavors of Satsuma oranges, lychee, honey, guava, baking spices and a balanced texture on the dry finish.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Attractive bouquet of ripe melon, gooseberry, elderflower and candied tangerine. The juicy green apple, peach and melon flavors on the palate are offset by a fantastically deep minerality. This motif is echoed in the refreshing and graceful finish.” (Jun 2013)

Founded in 1982 by winemaker Milla Handley, Handley Cellars is located in the Anderson Valley appellation of Mendocino County, California. Milla Handley and co-winemaker Randy Schock make key winemaking and vinification decisions such as percentage of whole berries, type of fermentation yeast, punch down regiment, length of fermentation time and barrel type based on vintage. “We use a number of techniques to promote appropriate acidity, minerality and aromatic qualities,” says Milla. She and Randy are fermentation specialists and will use up to 20 different cultured or natural yeasts per harvest. Milla and Randy prefer to work with winemakers who practice sustainable farming and all 30 acres of the Handley estate are CCOF certified organic.
Technical notes
The fruit was whole cluster pressed to tank. After the juice settled for three days, it was racked off its solids prior to fermentation in a stainless steel tank (50%) and neutral French oak (50%).

Producer
Handley Cellars is a small (about 14,000 cases per year) family-owned winery in California's Mendocino County, bonded in 1982. We are located at the northwest end of the Anderson Valley on 59 acres of the original Holmes Ranch. Still standing on the property are the now-refurbished ranch house, barn, and the original water tower.

At Handley Cellars we offer a wide variety of wines that complement today's diverse cuisine with its worldwide influences. Handley's winemaker Milla Handley seeks to make balanced wines that possess distinctive varietal characteristics, wines that reflect the soil and climate in which they were grown.
