BLEND OF GRAPES
80% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Blanc.
From a selection of grapes in the fields, and a selection of musts in cellar.
Bright straw yellow with a light golden glare.
Primary fermentation in a thermoregulated steel tank, bottling taking place in the summer following the harvest, natural secondary fermentation on the lees, disgorging with low sugar content liqueur.
Suggestions of ripe exotic fruits and candied fruits, hints of citrus, almonds and honey; vanilla and aromatic herbs, buttery.
Dry and harmonious, with hints of almonds and full-bodied evolving spices, elegant and complex, with a lingering aftertaste.
