Production Notes
The fruit for our 2016 Symphony was harvested on October 10, 2016. Following harvest, the grapes were crushed and gently pressed. The final blend did not contain any hard press fractions. After cold settling, the juice was inoculated with yeast and then fermented cold in stainless steel tanks for over 20 days to build up fruit characteristics.
Vineyard Notes
We have been producing Symphony since 1987, when the late Sylvia Sebastiani asked then winemaker, Mark Lyon, to make it for the tasting room! Symphony, a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Flora (Grenache x Gew├╝rztraminer), was developed by the late Dr. Harold Olmo of U.C. Davis. It is a Muscat improved hybrid that is adapted to warmer inland areas. The fruit for this wine came from Lodi, California, which features warm, sunny days and cooling winds in the afternoons through the evenings. 2016 was a warm vintage in California which produced ripe, high quality fruit. These ideal conditions resulted in a Symphony which has a rich profile with lychee and floral and characteristics.
