Wine Style Guide
Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.
Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.
Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.
Intense straw yellow, with a bouquet of distinct elegance, reminiscent of ripe citrus fruit, apricots, peach and nuts evolving towards exotic fruit and honey. Structured, silky-textured, mellow and well balanced, with excellent finesse, persistence and typicity.
"Features ripe melon and lemon-lime fruit character set on a medium-bodied, creamy frame, with ample acidity carrying the spicy finish. "
