When the Shepherd Gets Going... The Flavors Get Flowing!

This Sunday, only on Pay-Per-View, get ready for WhiteWineMania! Many will enter the ring, but only ONE will exit, and brother - it’s gonna be me! Because when The Shepherd gets going... the flavors, they get a-flowing! So all you other white wines out there better get ready, because you’re going DOWN!

A lot of my opponents have been saying that they’re gonna bring the flavor, but they ain’t tasted NOTHING like The Shepherd! You smell that? That’s lime, kiwi, and gooseberry, sucker! And when you get a whiff of sweet pea and jasmine, you KNOW you’ve been SMACKED with pleasing, bright aromas! My mouth may be gentle, but brother, the flavor is rich. Get ready to have your palate SLAMMED with lemon, grapefruit, and lychee! You’re in MY cellar now!

You think The Shepherd’s done with you? Think again, brother, because I’ll be finishing you off with citrus, mineral, and spice! And when I’m through with you, that championship belt will be MINE. Because when the Shepherd Gets Going.. say it with me... The FLAVORS GET FLOWNG!

Vintage: 2011 was the third in a string of unpredictable vintages… Cool and wet springtime conditions affected berry set and reduced yields by 20%. Cool weather continued throughout the growing season, slowly brining the smaller crop to maturity. Rains in early October forced a quick end to harvest. Despite the challenges, the wines of 2011 have bright aromas and flavors with beautiful finesse and intensity.

Winemaking: All of the fruit was picked cold and whole cluster pressed. The juice was clarified and slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine remained in tank on the lees (sur lie) for an additional 3 months. This wine was bottled in February 2012.
