About

92

Pure notes of fresh apple and pear peel are appetizing on the nose, with a touch of spicy tangerine peel. The palate amplifies these expressive fruit notes. Ripeness of fruit and concentration characterize the mid-palate that also shimmers with white pepper. The finish is long and intense, again with that lovely tangerine pith.

Product Description:

This wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation, as do all the wines. It is the only wine in the line-up that fully ferments in stainless steel where it spends one year on its fine lees. It is a crisp, fresh, aperitif-style grĂ¼ner that is salty and easy to drink.
