Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) This wine was fermented in a combination of old French oak barriques (25%) and stainless-steel tanks (75%), so there is very little oak influence on either nose or palate. This has allowed the vibrant fruit to show through beautifully with lively lime and lemon aromas and a flinty, mineral edginess with hints of fig and white peach. The weighty mid-palate also shows peachy ripeness along with crisp acid minerality that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. This wine is delightful as an aperitif, and even better to drink with fish and shellfish.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay
