2014 vintage started with a below norm temperatures from January to April. May came in with more normal temperatures and allowed the vines to settle in. Most of the summer was cooler and wetter which resulted in slow and steady maturation. August and September was back to normal temperatures and allowed the fruit to ripen. Harvest was as late as 10 days.
Vines were planted in 2005 but this is the first single varietal released. Fruit was nicely balance and cool fermented and aged in older French barriques for 6 months to add a light tannic structure.
This wine has aromas of delicate honey with herbaceous notes followed by soft fruit forward flavours with soft oaky notes. This wine has nice a straw colour and a soft finish. Try this wine fresh shell fish or chicken satays and spring vegetables such as asparagus and peas.

Aging In Oak:12 months
Release Date:August 1, 2018
