Secondary fermentation in bottle, blend of 77% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Noir. The wine is aged on its lees for 24 months. Vigorous fine bead with green apple, lemon, yeast and fresh sea breeze aromas. The palate echoes those aromatic notes and is brushed with grapefruit and citrus zest, followed with gentle, creamier biscuit and toast. Elegant and well structured with good fruit, acidity and lees harmony. The finish is long, dry and crisply detailed.
Dry and seductive as an aperitif. Also delicious with seafood or oysters!
