Wine Description

Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat. The refined finish echoes a smoky note.

Winemaker's Notes

(From NV Vintage) Bright yellow-gold. Poached pear and candied citrus fruits on the nose, which shows notes of spun sugar and toffee. Sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors are slightly cloying and loose-knit, with slow-mounting spiciness. Finishes on a warm note, with decent length and a suggestion of candied orange.

    (From NV Vintage) Not always consistent over the years, this latest version is young yet rich, fruity yet layered and a bit narrow yet deep enough to be convincing. More than that, it impresses today for its foamy, mouthfilling bubbles and long, lemony aftertaste. It can stand a bit of bottle age to gain a more rounded and complex patina, and, whether enjoyed now or later, it will be at home with either of platter of fresh-shucked oysters.
