WINERMAKER'S NOTES:
Emmolo carries on a family tradition dating back to 1923, when my great-grandfather Salvatore Emmolo immigrated from Italy to Rutherford, California - a small town in the middle of Napa Valley.

The style and character of Emmolo starts in the vineyard. Most of this vintage was sourced from family vineyards in two micro-climates of Napa Valley. Our vineyards in Rutherford provide fresh citrus characteristics, while our Oak Knoll location lends crisp minerality. The 2017 growing season featured plentiful rain, followed by mild spring weather and some ideal warm days. We picked the grapes in mid-August, achieving a healthy yield of high-quality fruit. The grapes were lightly pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. I aged the wine primarily in stainless steel, with a smaller portion in older French oak barrels to add depth and complexity while preserving the variety's character.

Tasting Notes: A luminous pale gold, this wine opens on the nose with the freshness of a first summer rain, layered with scents of white peach and a hint of guava. The palate features a lively acidity balanced by delicate fruit flavors of peach and newly ripened honeydew A tartness builds, softened by a smooth texture that lingers in the mouth. The mouth-watering finish is unusually bright and crisp.
