About the Wine:
Vinification: Grapes are harvested exclusively by hand , and undergo cryomaceration at 8° Celsius (46.4° Fahrenheit) for about 24 to 36 hours, so as to enhance varietal characteristics. Subsequently, they are soft-pressed. The resulting must is cold-decanted and fermented at a controlled temperature of approx. 17° Celsius (62.6° Fahrenheit), in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes

Light straw yellow with verdant hues.

Food accompaniment: Flavorful first courses such as risotto with asparagus and aromatic herbs, excellent with spicy oriental cuisine.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - James Suckling:
"Beautiful exotic-fruit aromas of mangoes and papaya. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a fresh finish. Drink now." - November 21, 2016

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Kiwifruit and passion fruit notes are bright and expressive in this zippy white, and the lip-smacking finish shows lime zest and grated ginger details. Drink now through 2018. 830 cases made." -AN (Mar 31, 2016)
