Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2015 Vintage) The grapes are harvested at night and promptly pressed to undergo cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks. An extended fermentation sur lie adds richness and softness, complementing the fruit’s natural zest and acidity. This wine is delicious with sushi, grilled sea bass or Asian chicken salad.
