It boasts a bouquet of
pomelo, white tea, amber and vanilla bean custard.
Flavors of spice, dulce de membrillo,
lemon zest and honeycomb contribute to the lush and seamless texture. The finish is long
and bright with a hint of minerality.
2012 has been described by many as “textbook perfect,” with both yields
and quality being well above average. The growing season was long and mild, leading to even
ripening, and harvest was completed before the first storm of the season arrived in late
October. The wines from 2012 are expressive, balanced and delicious!
