Winemaker's Notes:

Hand harvested and barrel fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentation's. It was aged sur lie for 16 months in French oak; 60% new.

This wine has aromas of guava, roasted nuts and lemon custard. The palate is dense but focused with a suave richness on the mid-palate that leads to a deep and long finish.

My Notes:
