3V White Blend 2019, Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard
A truly unique white blend, grown on our mountain estate. An enticing citrus-laden nose aptly reflects the refreshing treat to follow. A lemon-lime blend with traces of grapefruit provides a brightness that buoys the palate, while layers of tropical fruit, guava, pineapple and a floral kiss add interest and depth. Beneath the zesty flavors is a smooth, lush texture that perfectly balances the crisp acidity.
Pair with seared scallops drizzled with a white wine and lemon reduction, or grilled cilantro-lime chicken served with avocado salsa.

Bradford Mountain Estate Vineyard
This distinctive blend offers mouthwatering layers of aromas and flavors, starting with an inviting nose of mixed citrus—pomelo, fresh-squeezed Meyer lemon juice and lime zest—woven with wet slate. The palate reveals rich yet crisp flavors balanced by bracing acidity. A velvety lemon curd essence appears in the entry and quickly transitions into a fusion of bright citrus, including lemon, lime, grapefruit and mandarin orange, with traces of minerality and fresh herbs. As the flavors expand and linger, you start to long for that next sip.
Food Pairing Notes
The perfect wine to pair with oysters on the half shell, but will also go nicely with chicken piccata served over a bed of angel hair pasta, or orange-laced shrimp with zucchini fritters.
