Product Notes
Aiming for elegance, restraint and the ability to age, acid is bright, and the flavour is generous. Typically it shows white flowers, citrus, and nectarine notes. The 2020 vintage was very low yielding, which resulted in great concentration. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed. Fermented and matured on lees in French oak barriques and puncheons.
