This beautiful white is fermented and aged in large casks that add complexity but not wood sensations. It opens with a floral fragrance of white spring flowers, with whiffs of tropical fruit and flint. The palate delivers pineapple, banana, melon and spice flavors that close on an almond note. Bright acidity gives this a dry, refreshing finish.
