Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) Delicate and restrained, the nose exhibits nashi pear, cut limes and white peach; interwovenlayers of sesame, pecans, wheat biscuits and nougat, nurtures the primary fruits. Heightenedfloral notes of jasmine and lemon blossom lifts the nose giving fragrance, purity and subtlecomplexity. The palate is directed and focused; symmetry aligns around lemon, grapefruitand pear skin, through creamy oak, blanched almonds and sweet spice, leading to a finishthat is hallmarked by bright natural acidity with incredible length and persistence.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine Spectator
    "Supple, graceful and elegant. An outpouring of lovely flavors on a polished, refined frame, offering quince-accented pineapple and passion fruit against spicy, creamy notes that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,000 cases imported."
