The fruit was picked in the early morning to retain freshness and fermented with specially selected German yeast at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A long, slow fermentation enhanced the delicate floral aromatics.
|Clean aromas of quince and limestone ride over a riper stone fruit core. Light bodied in feel, the dry palate is taut and focused, with tart apricot, lime and a chalky, mineral tone. ALEXANDER PEARTREE|
