  • Vinification and maturation
    5 months in american oak barrel and 6 months in bottle prior to release.
  • Features
    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.
  • Food Pairings
    Pairs well with fresh seafood, garden vegetables, and poultry.
  • Medals / Press reviews
    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. »
