Whole cluster pressed, organic French yeast fermentation, native malolactic fermentation, barrel fermented in tight grain French oak barrels, 30% new, for 18 months. · Moderately light golden yellow color in the glass. A richly fruited style with aromas and flavors of lemon creme, pineapple, baked pear, butter. There is adequate natural acidity to temper the sappy fruit giving the wine a vibrant character.
