After expressing our delight at receiving four tons of Compagni Portis in 2014, Mother Nature slapped us in the face and provided us with only half that amount in 2015. Picked earlier than ever on August 18th, we fully destemmed the fruit before pressing to maximize our juice yields. Alas, even with the destemming, our juice yields were considerably lower than normal, resulting in just under 100 cases of this lip-smacking, refreshing wine. (Fortunately we’ll have a bit more from 2016.)
 
Tasting Note: Pale white-yellow. An explosively perfumed nose of lychee, rose petal, green apple, and pear. I could sniff this forever! Medium-bodied with intense flavors of lychee, apple, and lime. Finishes crisp and long with less phenolic character than usual. A top-notch vintage for this unique, delicious wine. Drink from release through 2023. (MRO – 04/03/17)
