This wine has expressive aromas of stone and citrus fruit such as juicy, ripe peaches, lime and tangerine. It is perfumed on the nose with notes of white flower, spice and
honey. It’s dry and crisp on the palate with impressive texture, a rich mouthfeel and nice weight while still maintaining a freshness on the finish.
Sourced from low-yielding vines, the grapes were de-stemmed, and gently pressed. After cold settling, clear juice was racked and fermented slowly in mostly
stainless steel, with a small percentage in neutral oak. Aged post-fermentation in stainless steel and barrel without malolactic fermentation, kept on light lees for an
extended period until final filtration and bottling.
This wine has great weight and texture which makes it ideal to pair with a variety of richer dishes including lobster, butter chicken, pork tenderloin and trout. It pairs well with a variety of different cheeses especially brie and aged gouda.
