Rock Candy continues to impress with it's easy going Paso Robles style. This fruit was fermented in my classic method: a long cold soak followed by a native yeast fermentation and early pressing for the additional savory characteristics that are imparted by barrel fermentation. Aging in 100% neutral French oak for 19 months allows the true nature of Ohana to shine through.
The name Rock Candy refers to one of my favorite aroma memories, when my mom used to make my sister and I lollipops as children.
Explosive nose of blackberry jam, candy apple and orange marmalade with chewy, rich, ripe berry fruit flavors. Firm and full bodied on the palate with soft, ripe tannins and a long finish.
