An elegant wine with a long lingering finish. We love the swing-top bottle top - gives it an extra feel of casual French Chic!

Tasting Notes

Colour

Pleasant, brilliant body with golden glints.

Nose

Very expressive, it gives off a wide variety of aromas, including citrus, white peach, acacia flowers and buttery notes.

Palate

The first palate is fresh and harmonious, developing into flavours ranging from lemon zest to exotic fruits. The finish is wonderfully long.

Vinification

The grapes are harvested when just ripe, pressed and the must is also racked at a low temperature for 12 hours, seeded with yeast. Fermentation at a low temperature (15 - 17° C). Alcohol fermentation for about a week.

Soil

Sandy, clay-chalky and schistose.
