harvest note

2018 is an exceptional vintage. After a cold winter and rainy spring, bloom took place in ideal growing conditions. July and August were some of the warmest months on record, excluding the heat spikes of 2016 and 2017. The vines were stressed in the beginning of September, however at midmonth we experienced two weeks of cool nights followed with light rain. This helped the maturation and allowed the grapes to develop complex aromatic profiles with nice acidity.

tasting note

The wine has a clear and brilliant light gold color. The nose is complex and expresses fruity notes such as citrus and white peach, fine fragrance of white flowers and toasty notes enhanced with vibrant minerality. The palate is fresh, mineral and reveals a nice harmony between the aromatic complexity and an invigorating acidity. The finish is energetic and delicate.
