Brassfield’s home ranch sits on the west side of High Valley Appellation, also known as, High Serenity Ranch, and serves as the namesake for the estate’s proprietary white wine blend. Situated 1800 ft. above sea level, the vines are set in gravelly loam soils and experience temperate climates – which allow longer hang-time for the grapes and help to enhance the aromas, flavors and acidity of the wine.
The prized 2013 Brassfield Estate Serenity White Blend is a unique proprietary blend, showing lively citrus aromas of grapefruit, and tangerine and orange blossom. The flavors are rich and deep with elements of citrus, dried apricot, honeyed pineapple, and jasmine, with a hint of lime zest on the finish. The 2012 Brassfield Estate Serenity White is well balanced and displays a long clean, smooth finish.
Enjoy the 2013 Brassfield Estate Serenity White Blend now; don’t wait! This Serenity white blend pairs beautifully with the following dishes: THEGRAPE’s Pasta Pescatore Recipe, green curry, herbed chicken skillet with spinach and tomatoes and vegetarian tacos.
