"This offers a lively mix of tangerine, peach and lemon peel notes, inlaid with vibrant acidity and backed with a streak of orange zest. Decant if drinking now, or tuck away for a few months. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported."
Organically farmed, single vineyard planted in ’97 and dry farmed. The grapes were handpicked across three pick dates with early picks ensuring good pH and acid and structure coupled with enveloping aromas from the riper batches. The majority of the grapes were whole bunch pressed to stainless steel with 10% being barrel fermented. 20% of the stainless ferments were fermented on skins for two weeks for added texture and character. The wine aged for seven months on the gross lees prior to a careful racking. The wine was bottled without fining nor filtration and bottled with a total SO2 of 34 ppm. -- Importer
