Winemaker's Note

Rich golden color. The nose is complex with aromas of citrus flowers, white blossoms, and white stone fruits, accompanied by delicate hints of vanilla. The mouth is buttery and rich uncovering layers of flavors -similar to the nose-, together with beautifully integrated notes of oak and brioche. Long aftertaste.
