Winemaker's Notes:

Deep straw color. Aromas of peach, citrus, vanilla and that beautiful floral note which comes from the Sauvignon Gris are punctuated with light caramel and a slight nutty aroma. As always this wine has a richness in the palate which is unmistakably Elevage Blanc. The mouthfeel is striking with a delightfully long rich finish. The bright acidity is in perfect balance with the texture of the wine.
