This wine shows sweet tropical fruits, but the wine itself is not sweet
Positives: Gold in colour this wine features mango, nectarine, tangerine, kiwi, ginger, lemon drops and honeysuckle on the nose.
Interesting Point: Naturally fermented in barrels at 16˚C. The grapes were pressed gently up to 0.9 Bar pressure after a short period of skin contact. Partial malolactic fermentation took place in older 225L French oak barrels and a 2,500L oak Foudre. All five varietals were matured separately in barrel for a total
maturation time of 10 months before being blended for bottling.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with jerk chicken.
My Opinion: Recommended
