About This Wine

On the nose: explosion of pears, apricots, almonds with touches of brioche, minerality, white peaches

On the palate: fresh entrance evolving on vanilla bean, citrus flower lingering on orange blossom, star fruit

Wine Profile

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Vintage Notes:

2012 proved to be a vintage of extremes. This is not because of frost, heat, or rain, but mainly due to the high yield of fruit. Weather was ideal with no frost, a mild spring, and a very temperate, long growing season. This allowed all varietals to ripen to their optimum condition with significant concentration and complexity. The biggest challenges were to find space to ferment and to manage the tannin structure of the very thick-skinned red vintage. This meant that winemakers who simply apply recipes had a challenging year as tannin levels were at twice the average level.
