Aromas of Meyer lemon, mandarin oranges, and wet stone, with a subtle underlying sweetness of vanilla bean.
Round and textured with flavors of candied citrus peel and a hint of pineapple, with a racy acidity that brings out the wine’s zingy minerality.
All fruit is organically grown.
The grapes were harvested the end of August and early September 2014.
The grapes were whole-cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented in a stainless steel tank at 45 degrees F for two weeks, then sent to barrel and aged sur-lie for five months with monthly lees stirring. 20% new French oak barrels help frame the wine’s prominent floral and citrus notes, while adding to its structure and age ability.
5 months in French oak, 20% new / 80% 1 to 2 year old Ailler from Treuil.
