The grapes are hand-harvested in order to preserve the highest quality. After fermentation, the wine spends 2-3 months aging on fine lees to create additional structure and depth of flavour. Fresh, perfumed aromas are complimented by notes of grapefruit, peach and apricot. The palate develops round citrus and apple flavours leading into subtle notes of nectarine and caramel. Complex and smooth with good acidity creating a dry mineral finish. Pairs well with pork, cured meat, salads and Thai food.
