Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright gold with a slightly grey tint.

Intense buttery smells add to quince preserve and specific touches of almonds and pineapple.

The flavors counterbalance each other between sweet and acid. Intense and clear smells, a balanced wine.

To go with white meats and specifically a roasted chiken cooked with mushrooms, the whole of Asian cook, or think about a rabbit cooked in almond milk.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and juicy, with a medium-weight core of quince, pear and creamed green apple flavors laced with a ginger note. The long, minerally finish is very stylish. Drink now through 2014. 800 cases made."
