After field sorting the fruit before it reached the winery, we gently whole-cluster pressed
the grapes to retain acidity and minimize tannin extraction. This vintage, two vineyards
in the blend were lightly crushed before pressing for a very small amount of skin contact.
Cool, not cold, fermentation emphasized varietal character and subtle terroir nuances. In 2022, average to moderate yields allowed 78% barrel fermentation with 22% in stainless for freshness and acid balance. As usual, the barrels were mostly older 500L Acacia puncheons, which only added texture with no aroma or flavor impact and helped buffer our typically high acidity. A very small inclusion of Semillon (1%) was used as a final finishing touch for overall wine balance.

Pale yellow in color and star bright with a slight green tinge. The nose is filled with floral notes of jasmine, hibiscus and white rose, with lingering aromas of classic lemongrass, nectarine and clementine. On the palate, the Quivira mark of high acidity is balanced out with minerality reminiscent of limestone, topped off by layered flavors of Meyer lemon, Key lime, orange flower water and spring herbs.
