Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Pale gold color with aromas of stone and tropical fruits with a bit of citrus and sweet floral, aged 75% French oak & 25% stainless, no malolactic fermentation. On the palate melon, pineapple, apricot and some honeysuckle with hints of lemon zest and biscuit notes, delicate, complex and well balanced. Long finish, savory, ending with mineral tones and nutty toasty character. Will age well. Outstanding!

Very smooth, pineapple, fruit, old world, creamy mouth. Butter aftertaste, almost flawless
