About

93

Pale yellow. Intense mineral-accented melon and poached pear aromas are deepened by notes of honey and smoky lees. Firm and sharply focused on the palate, with fresh citrus and exotic fruit flavors sharpened by racy minerality and a suggestion of mint. Acts a lot like a wine from Ramonet. The firm, stony finish shows superb clarity and deep melon and orange zest qualities that linger with excellent tenacity.

Product Description:

The grapes are hand-harvested in small boxes and fermented whole bunch with no additives and pressed to barrel. Nightly battonage is implemented over a 9 month period of time helping to soften the wine and provide more texture. The wine spends 12 months total in French oak, of which 10% is new French barrique, the remainder is 2-3 year old French puncheons and barriques.
