Winemakers Comments: Declared as one of the ‰ۡÌÝÌáWorld‰ۡó»s Greatest Wines‰ۡó»! An expressive wine with aromas of elderflower, fresh apricots and other exotic stonefruits complemented perfectly by hints of honey and spiced undertones. A refreshing wine of significant weight and texture well balanced by good acidity providing a wonderful long finish.
Winemaking: Gentle grape pressing was followed by a natural yeast fermentation in French oak puncheons (500lt). Half of the young wine went through a secondary fermentation with its lees regularly stirred. Aged for 18 months in the same barrels before bottling.
Food Suggestions: Well suited to rich seafood and fish dishes. Also excellent with veal and chicken.
Cellaring Potential: 5 years
