This wood-aged wine is an impressive blend of Loin de l'Oeil and Sauvignon Blanc. The result is a wine that is rich, spicy, layered with creamy wood while preserving an intense freshness. From a stony vineyard, it has some of minerality that comes from the soil. It is a wine to age; drink from 2017.
