The grapes were destemmed, crushed, and then fermented in French and American oak barrels for nine months. During the “Sur Lie” barrel ageing the wine also underwent secondary fermentation imparting a slight buttery overtone and adding texture and body to this wine Generous aromas of lemon glaze, pear tart, honeysuckle, and flint prepare the palate for a harmonious confluence of melon, stone fruit, citrus zest, and a hint of mineral and nutmeg. These flavors are framed by exciting acidity finishing with a spicy creaminess. You can pair this wine with whitefish, lobster and crab, pasta with cream sauces, or creamy cheese.
