(2011 Vintage) After a gentle, whole-cluster press, 100% of the wine was barrel fermented in French oak. Malolactic fermentation was introduced to 100% of the wine to soften the acidity and impart a smooth mouthfeel. The wine was then allowed to age in the barrel sur lie for nine months before bottling. Barrels were stirred by hand once every two weeks during sur lie aging.
Appealing lime and lemongrass aromas, followed by grapefruit, melon and white peach flavors.
Good tones. Medium to higher low acidity ..
I don't really like it. Too strong
