SIERRA FOOTHILLS, CALIFORNIA
The Sierra Foothills were the center of the California Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. European immigrants ﬂocked here seeking their fortunes and planted the area’s ﬁrst vineyards as they settled into life in the Wild West. Rustic and remote compared to the state’s other regions – Gold Rush ghost towns still dot the countryside – growers take full advantage of the varied terrain of the foothills, utilizing the slopes to maximize sun exposure. The shallow soil is mainly decomposed granite, shale or volcanic matter; not particularly fertile ground, nor does it retain much moisture in a region where water can be scarce. These harsh-sounding conditions are actually good news for grapes as the vines yield less fruit, resulting in more concentrated ﬂavours
Symphony is one of California’s hidden gems bringing peach, apple and tropical fruit ﬂavours, it is a natural and perfect complement to Gewürztraminer’s characteristic lychee notes. An aromatic blend with ﬂoral and juicy peach aromas, this off-dry wine deliciously combines lush tropical and stone fruit ﬂavours. Crisp and bright with expressive fruit and subtle sweetness, this wine really sings when chilled. A beauty to sip on its own, or a perfect companion to spicy Asian dishes, zesty barbecue or baked ham.
