Experiments in the cellar can be risky but this one gave way to brilliance. We aged this wine an additional year in a large-format (600L) new French oak barrel and loved the result. The wine gained complexity & a kiss of honey on the palate without losing the allure of bright fruit it had in its youth. This wine treads the line between opulence and modesty with intricate aromatics & flavors. Honey-hued aromas of toasted marshmallow and marmalade are underscored by tart key lime on the nose. The palate has a comfortable weight to it, with crisp white nectarine and indulgent pineapple flavors.
