Picking decisions were made with ripe flavor in mind. Maritime influences in the evening tempered the afternoon’s warm sun, allowing for a long hang time and resulting in fully developed and concentrated flavors. Fermentation took place entirely in stainless steel tanks with minimal intervention, and lees stirring created a velvety mouthfeel. All of the wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was aged on French oak for further depth and roundness.
Smooth, opulent layers of pineapple and lemon peel are heightened by sweet smells of honey, almonds, baking spices, and subtle custard notes. The full flavors are highlighted by succulent acidity and a clean, mineral-driven finish.
