Hand-harvested. Barrelfermented in 10% new oak and 90% second and third-fill French oak barrels. Left on lees for another 10 months while undergoing malolactic fermentation.
Straw yellow with attractive glints of green. On the nose glorious layers of sun-kissed pear and peach are enhanced by fresh minerality and a hint of piquant vanilla. The full-bodied palate is in perfect harmony: generously fruity and subtly spicy, with well-judged acidity contributing excellent balance and a lively, lingering aftertaste.
