Vinification and maturation
5 months in american oak barrel and 6 months in bottle prior to release.
On the nose, there are intense aromas of ripe fruits, with an emphasis on pear, tropical fruits, and citrus notes. They are all tied together with a touch of spice from its time in barrel. On the palate, the wine is well balanced with a well integrated acidity. Notes of citrus, tropical fruits, and a slight honeyed quality results in a complex and refreshing finish.
Pairs well with fresh seafood, garden vegetables, and poultry.

Wine Spectator: 91 pts – mill. 2014 & Top 100 :2016, Rank: 62. « This bold white marries expressive flavors to a muscular texture. Pear and quince notes mingle with brioche, chamomile and dried pineapple details, with juicy acidity and light tannins lending support. Lively now, this should harmonize with time. »
