This ripe wine comes from vines from two parcels: one normally in the wine, with vines more than more than 60-years-old, the other a hilltop vineyard added in 2014. It is full of rich white fruits that skirt on the zesty side of citrus, giving a crisp edge to this otherwise full wine. It is balanced, juicy and ready to drink.
