Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
D.A. Ranch Vineyard, Yavapai County, AZ. 4,200 ft. elevation.
Production Notes
This wine saw only minimal cold-stabilization, did NOT undergo heat-stabilization and is filtered, but un-fined.
Winemaker Notes
Chateau Tumbleweed's first stab at a dessert wine, this late-harvest Seyval Blanc was sourced from our friends at the D.A. Ranch Vineyard in Page Springs. We let this fruit hang an extra 6 weeks, resulting in very ripe, concentrated flavors and almost 30% sugar at harvest. We arrested fermentation around 12% alcohol, leaving 9-10% residual sugar to balance the wine's high acid and ripe flavors. This wine has intense honey, banana and dried flower notes that will pair with a range of desserts or can serve just fine as dessert alone.
