Winemaker's Notes

The nose jumps out of the glass – gooseberries, fig, tinned peas, black truffle, elderflower, ripe tropical fruit, cut grass and green pepper. The wine is full, intensely flavored and very long on the finish – perfectly balanced. Excellent with saucy chicken, fish, and pasta dishes.

A note of dusty minerality runs through the wine from beginning to end. This was bottled with a screwcap, I move I applaud."- Steven Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
