Tasting Notes: Pale Yellow Straw in colour. Toasty, sweet bees wax notes on the nose with a wet slate mineral undertone. Subtle but fresh, doughy yeast autolysis aromas. Evolution on the palate has tart nectarine flesh which builds to a mid-palate presence of baked rice pudding with milky skin characters. A vibrant, crisp but juicy acid tail and dry but delicate apple skin tannin drive on the finish.

Viticultural Notes: The grapes for this wine come our vineyard in Gruyere. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our forty year-old vines are at the heart of this wine.
