Description

A mild winter followed by May frosts held back ripening early in the season but hot, dry, almost drought conditions in the summer brought ripening on and in the end August rains were a welcome relief. Those rains kept the grapes on track and beautiful weather at harvest time brought them to a perfect pitch of ripeness. As such, 2019 is a very good vintage, balancing structure and ripeness with freshness and lovely aromatics that will see dry and sweet wines alike ageing very well.

A lively, brilliant, and alert pale green wine, with hints of lemon yellow with a silvery sheen and dynamic and dashing legs. The aroma is floral and fruity; impulsive spring flowers: lily of the valley, primrose, lemon balm, cardamom, pear, white peach, fresh mint with an overall accent that is both refreshing and pure. The flavour stays elegantly on the palate highlighted by a nice dashing liveliness and a delicious, round and aromatic finish.
