This wine, a perennial favorite sourced from a vineyard just a few miles due south of our estate, receives extended contact with the grape skins after crushing, and is raised entirely in stainless steel to preserve its crisp, precise character. A beguiling pale straw color in the glass serves as entrée to complex aromas of white peach, green apples, tree-ripened passion fruit and marzipan. The deliciously textured palate shows hints of quince and lemongrass. Pair this with raw oysters or Thai green chicken curry.
