Tasting Notes

The aromas are flinty with honey, orange blossom and white stone fruit notes.

Food Pairing

Cellaring Notes

This wine was left on its gross lees for 7 months before being bottled with occasional lees stirring during this time.

Vinification

The grapes are handpicked with great care and chilled overnight in a cold room. The following day they are whole bunch pressed to a settling tank. These vineyards were picked over about 10 days and each day fresh juice was added to the already fermenting tanks – this extended the alcoholic fermentation by about 20 days but was also very important in the complete integration of the wine as all the various vineyards or components were fermented together. Some of the juice is also fermented in older French oak casks.
