Product Info

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Color: Bright, pale straw. Nose:Expressive. Floral with heady notes of tropical fruit and good intensity. Undertones of the region’s granitic minerality promise a complex wine. Palate: Dry, with nicely-balanced acidity and minerality typical of the region. Despite being fresh (and refreshing), this wine has notes of ripe stone fruits, some tropicality and shows a certain creaminess against its strong, mineral backdrop. Long, elegant finish. Abundant personality. 

TASTING NOTES:

This is a bit more neutral than some of the winery's offerings—thank the Chardonnay, I suppose—but it handles its wood well and has beautiful structure. Showing reasonable concentration and a food-wine demeanor rather than a lot of personality, this finishes well and shows plenty of freshness. It is nicely done.
