Winemaker's Notes:

Stunning aromatics with remarkable purity and finesse, this wine has excellent depth and richness. Lifted by citrus fruit and layers of ripe stone fruit, along with spicy notes of ginger, white pepper, and anise all underlined by a kiss of tropical fruit shining through on the palate. Subtle French oak, roughly 25% new, offers toasted hazelnut and peanut skin. The sandy soils of this site, lying squarely in the middle of the appellation, volunteer an earthiness and briny sea shell, mineral driven finish to the wine.
My Notes:

About Deovlet:

As links in a chain, we understand the importance of working together with premium sites and talented winegrowers. Fruit quality is essential to crafting memorable wines of elegance, balance, and harmony. At each vineyard site during each vintage, vines are carefully managed and yields are restricted in an effort to achieve the ultimate concentration of flavor. With respect to Mother Nature, harvest decisions are based intending to display the purest, most natural vineyard expression possible.

Throughout the winemaking process, to produce a seamless balance between grape variety and site, the wines are carefully handcrafted with minimal intervention. Bringing together passion, artistry, and intuition, we are always leaning on the history of this ageless craft and never forgetting ‘those who went before us and showed us the way.'
