On the nose, delicate floral notes are surrounded by aromas of apricot, nectarine, and ripe pineapple. The full mouthfeel delivers rich flavors of vanilla creme brulee to the palate and an uplifting freshness sustains a long finish.
Made with 100% Petit Manseng, this wine is produced with dried grapes in the traditional vin de paille (“straw wine”) style. The drying process occurs in small vented lugs for three weeks before pressing. During drying, water is evaporated from the berry to increase the concentration of sugar. The grapes are pressed around 31 Brix and the wine ferments and ages in barrels, one third of which are new (50% acacia, 50% French oak).
