Winemaker's Notes

Grown in a vein of alluvial, Cortina soil that runs through the heart of our estate, this wine expresses the intensity and verve of its marquee site. Opening with a vividly floral nose of acacia and orange blossom, this wine expands on the palate with layers of fresh stone fruit, succulent apricot and white peach that combine around a lively hint of spicy persimmon. The deliciously balanced texture of this wine is mouth-filling, round and sumptuous. A final note of citrus lingers on the finish.
