This is a beautifully delineated perfumed nose offering exotic spices, white peach, apricot and pungent flowers.  Candied ginger, anise seed and mineral-accented orange peel bring layers of complexity to a supple, silky texture that’s complemented by bright acidity bringing length.  This wine is wonderfully balanced and persistent.  Aged for 10 months in a combination of stainless steel and 400L French oak puncheons, both older neutral vessels and once-filled.

Technical Information
