From their website...
Big House White is a crisp yet round wine with a floral nose, accentuated by honeysuckle, litchi, and a bit of a tropical fruit cocktail. A virtual potpourri of fruits including cantaloupe, peach, apricot, and litchi. The finish is fairly long with a nice apricot character.
Harvest in the cool of the morning and then it’s off to the big house for those little buggers to get squished before the sun comes up. The juice undergoes a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to maximize the fruit characteristics and retain both its trademark acidity and length in the finish.
