Notes from the Winemaker:

Medium gold in color. The nose features notes of fresh fruits such as peaches and apricots with a touch citrus. The palate recalls bananas, yellow plums, and a bit of asparagus. French oak lends notes of vanilla and heightens the lactic notes with a backdrop of butter and yogurt. This is a fresh wine with pleasing acidity, medium volume, and a persistent finish

Food Pairing:
Highly recommended with salmon ceviche, sea bass with sautéed mushrooms and rice, Fettuccini Alfredo, conger eel soup, and razor clams Parmesan.

Oak Aging: 35% of the wine was aged in third-use oak barrels for 8 months.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Firm and well-structured, with fresh-cut green apple and Bosc pear flavors. Salted almond and mineral notes show on the toasty finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,318 cases imported." – KM (Nov 15, 2014)
