About the Winery:
Family owned since its founding in 1981, proprietors Pete and Terri Kight were drawn to the estate's natural beauty and unspoiled rural character. With 63 acres of vines planted at Wine Creek Ranch, and another 26 at two sites close by, today Quivira Vineyards is a leading producer of Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc and Rh么ne varieties, with a reputation for intentional winegrowing and a thoughtful commitment to organic farming.

About the Wine:
Bright and intense tropical fruit immediately pops from the glass. Notes of grapefruit, honeydew and lemon zest, followed by additional tropical notes of pineapple and passion fruit with just a touch of grassiness and orange pith on the finish. The round, mouth filling juiciness is held together by crisp acidity, which shows itself on the mid and late palate, balancing the wine. The finish is long, fruit-forward and flavorful, espousing the complexity of the blend from both the vineyard and the winemaking.

92 Points 聽- Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Mouthwatering, showing Meyer lemon, pineapple, peach, lime zest and a hint of lanolin on a rich, lush frame, but with a vibrant, sleek acidity to keep the flavors fresh and focused." - MW (web only 2022)
