This is a ripe, lightly toasty wine, with great fruit and spice flavors. Warm yellow-fruit flavors come from the blend of Chardonnay and Arinto, giving a creamy, rich texture. The acidity is well in balance to keep the wine fragrant and fresh. Drink now, although the wine will be even better from 2016.
