Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful golden color and fragrant floral and citrus aromas, with a reminiscent of wet pebbles. A note of hazelnut from the elegant oak carries through on the palate. Bright and crisp, with a creamy and soft mouthfeel, nicely framed by some toasty oak - not too much, just the right level. Excellent balance throughout the long aftertaste.
