This single vineyard wine is concentrated and full of dense white fruits. It is a powerful wine. It hints of citrus balanced with a mineral texture and a vivid aftertaste.

Product Description:

"Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Very soft pressing of the whole destemmed grapes. Long cold clarification. Fermentation in new 400-litre Frenchoak barrels. Ageing in these barrels for 9 months with b√Ętonnage on the whole lees. 12 months ageing in bottle.Complexe and austere nose. Hints of wild flowers and hay along with a delicate minerality remembering wet stone. Some hazelnut and vanilla coming from the oak fermentation and aging. On the palate arefreshing acidity and verticality. A touch of smoke ending long and elegant." Winery
