Tasting Notes

Perfumed aromas of fresh melon, yellow apple, lime and white peach, with complementary mineral and toasty-spicy oak scents. On the full-bodied, yet sleek palate, the wine offers concentrated, beautifully focused, peach, apple and citrus zest flavors, with mineral and spice tones enlivening the long, refreshing finish. Delightful now will drink beautifully for another 3 to 5 years.

Method

The grapes are harvested at night in small batches at perfect maturity. The fruit, cool from the evening temperatures, was pressed directly into tank using whole cluster pressing then the juice was transferred to into French oak barrels to ferment. In order to achievemaxi mum fruit expression, we aged the wine on primary yeast lees for eight months with
intermittent stirring of the lees to enhance texture and boost complexity. 13% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.

    The power of a new world chardonnay without the weight or wood. Fresh on the palate without an abundance of acidity. A well-made wine that you can enjoy, from cork to empty glass. Just the right amount of fullness with lots of interesting fruit and aromatics. The best part – the long finish … that looks for more. A great evening
