PDF Tasting Notes

“The nose on the 2013 Alibi is bright and lifted with grapefruit, pear and pineapple notes following through with a juicy tropical fruit palate. This wine has great structure, with crisp acidity and a rich mouth feel that gives way to a long, lingering finish. It is very food friendly and would be delicious with salads, or an array of seafood.” 
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

“The 2013 growing year proved to be exceptional. Starting off early, the season remained about 2 weeks ahead of most previous years all summer. With an abundance of sunshine and moderate temperatures the season was ideal throughout veraison and all the way to harvest, which gave us an excellent, lengthy ripening period. An almost perfect vintage, this one will be ‘a vintage to remember’.”
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
