Sandalwood, blueberry and raspberry leaf aromatics kick start this tiny-lot bottling (40 cases). Bright and fresh blackberry and a stony palate are tamed by a creamy texture that completes with a determined and dignified finish.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.
