ESTIMATED PEAK 2025
WINEMAKER’S NOTES The fruit was handpicked and placed into stainless steel tanks under Carbon Dioxide for 7 days. The free run juice was transferred to concrete, and some of the pressed juice was added before ambi- ent fermentation took hold. Malolactic conversion took placenaturally alongside the primary. The wine spent all its fermentation and maturation in concrete before being bottled unfiltered, roughly 14 months.
SOMMELIER’S NOTES The nose has depth and emits golden apple, quince, pineapple, and green mango fruit along with cardamom and a floral lift. The palate is dry, fresh, and long. I prefer the expression of the wine from a burgundy glass over the intuitive aromatic.
