Winemaker's Notes

This is a solid wine of great balance, with well-focused aromas showing youthful apple and pear fruit … with a sweet, creamy enrichment of toasty oak scents. There is an appealing depth of fruit in the mouth, with great continuity between nose and flavor. The structure holds firm with ample acidity, yet retains richness and suppleness. Its crisp structure and freshness make it a tremendous offering with a variety of foods.

Alcohol: 13.6% by volume
