Description

An alluring and for its genre unusually sweetly-perfumed nose of orange zest, winter pear, almond extract, and lily-of-the-valley leads to an - again, for the genre unusually - soft, caressing palate, but one underlain by telltale evidence of chalk and stone. A gorgeous mingling of these mineral notes with nut oils informs the wine's long finish.

Winemaking Notes

Pressed by hand, pressed in a pneumatic press. Cold clarification of grape juice, then temperature controlled fermentation at 20° for four weeks. The wine then stays on its lees(sur lie) for seven months until it is bottled.
