Description

Colour:Golden yellow with a bright, greenish hue. Nose: Very intense, fruity bouquet with citrus, lime and peachy notes, lightly balsamic with hints of mint and sage, nutty tones and orange blossom.

Palate: Dry and elegant with a good balance of fresh acidity and a supple, aromatic persistance, very well integrated, complex oak characters add depth to this beautifuly well crafted wine.White Sicilia

The grapes were harvested during the first half of August, the individual parcels were selected for their ripeness and various levels of acidity and sugar in order to facilitate a complex wine.

After de-stemming and crushing, the juice was left overnight to settle whilst being chilled and cold macerated for 8-12 hours. It was then innoculated with pure yeast strains and transferred to 225 litre oak barrels (1/2 new, 1/2 one year old) to ferment for 15 days at around 20 degrees C.

The wine was aged in 225 litre Allier oak barrels for 10 months before bottling
