Winemaker's Notes

WINEMAKING The fruit was gently destemmed, crushed then pressed. The juice was cold settled, racked, then fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to maximise fruit expression. Towards the end of fermentation, the wine was transferred to new and seasoned American and French oak barriques for aging on light lees. It was then fined and bottled.

COLOR Light straw with vibrant green hues BOUQUET Stone fruit, citrus, melon, savory oak PALATE Peach, nectarine, grapefruit, cream CELLARING Medium to long term cellaring, will see this wine continue to integrate

Donna L - Medford, NY (read all my reviews)

Beautifully fruity, hints of apple, apricots and pears and yet nicely balanced with oak. Earthy and vibrant. I would highly recommend this wine with any dish your serving. Great paired with a salty cheeses, such as locatelli and aged parmesiano. Great for impressing guests.
