Pallet Details:

The fruit was sourced from the winery's own Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards situated in the cooler sites of the Castel Boglione commune. The fruit was hand-harvested and the containers transported to the winery for chilling to 41ºF. The whole clusters were then loaded into the pneumatic press where they were gently pressed. No SO2 was added at any stage before disgorging much later. After settling for 48 hours the juice was racked and tank fermented at 59ºF. When this had completed, the wine rested in a cool underground cellar for three and a half years on it's yeast lees to give it richness and complexity. It was then hand riddled and disgorged.

Food Match

This wine pairs well with white meats and fish dishes.

Tasting Notes

Creamy, bready notes balanced by fresh fruit. Subtle citrus aromas and yeasty, biscuity notes. On the palate more lees' characters balanced by ripe orchard fruits. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and a touch of fresh acidity on the finish.
