The 12 Oaks Estate Vineyard during the 2012 vintage allowed Thomas Houseman to produce a style that’s a bit drier than the previous year. A whiff brings up huge clove notes with lychee, peach, apricot, pear and pineapple. Its approach is crisp and dry with Granny Smith apple and Asian pear flavors, backed by a refreshing tiny dash of spritzy acidity than funnels into classic finish of river rock. The technical data directs it bone dry at 0.69% residual sugar with a total acidity of 8.9 and pH dropping down to 2.87. Suggested pairing include grilled clams, sushi, red curry, bratwurst and Oregonzola cheese.
