From the Winery
The color is palest white gold with flashes of yellow. The nose is vibrant and alive, with honeydew melon, spices and flowers, Meyer lemon and lime green citrus notes. It is kinetic in the mouth, both drinkable and so savory. There’s a sense of sweet fruit, but this wine is utterly bone dry. The finish is gorgeous – clean, long, and fresh. It is the freshness that reminds you of young Portuguese whites, Sardinian Vermentino, Greek carafe wines, or even Roman Frascati – but it takes a more serious complex turn on the finish.
A waypoint is an intermediate point or place on a route or line of travel. In modern terms, it most often refers to coordinates that specify one’s position on the globe. In the wine world, one’s waypoint tells a unique story of time and place in the glass. Waypoint was born out of the idea of spotlighting single vineyard properties, throughout California, to highlight the unique terroir and characteristics of each of these singular plots of dirt. Between Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, Waypoint was one of the first brands in California to place an emphasis on sourcing fruit from one specific locale and giving it the credit it was due.
