Enjoy with a picnic. Also pairs beautifully with paella or risotto.
60% barrel matured in one and two year old French oak with malo-lactic fermentation.
Fruit-driven and expressive with aromas of citrus and stone fruit and a hint of creamy oak.
The palate is lively and fresh with elegant white peach flavours evolving towards melon and building to a rich and soft mouthfeel before fresh mineral acidity ensures a long dry finish.
Machine harvested from midnight to early morning to maximise retention of natural acidity before a short cold soak at seven degrees. Whole bunch fermentation in stainless steel is followed by 40% maturation in tank on lees for four months without malo-lactic fermentation and 60% barrel matured in one and two year old French oak with malo-lactic fermentation. As in much of Europe, 2015 was an outstanding vintage in the south of France. Winter and spring were very wet, ensuring excellent soil moisture levels before a hot, dry summer followed ensuring good growth and healthy vineyards. Finally a moderate but clear Autumn ensured steady ripening and the cool nights courtesy of the clear skies allowed the retention of freshness and natural acidity. Although yields were a touch low, the wines are fantastic with lovely aromatics, excellent depth of flavour and vibrant acidity.
