Tasting Notes

Style

Balanced, Full-bodied

Flavor

Lemon confit and wet rocks while a touch of hazelnut

Aroma

Intriguing aromas of grilled citrus, stone fruits and roasted almond

Taste

Very expressive, displaying lemon confit and wet rocks while a touch of hazelnut adds charm. Bright, detailed, and nuanced, this wine has a lot going on aromatically, while the minerally stone fruits on the palate are racy with a long finish.
