The lack of oak aging really allows the natural fruitiness of this great Merlot to shine through. Blueberries, plums and light spices on the nose are followed by an equally fruity palate. Plums dominate the palate, backed by some cinnamon and pepper, leading to a soft finish.
Malolactic fermentation is prevented to keep the wine’s natural acidity and freshness. The wonderful nose is full of spring flowers and young fruit, especially green mangos and pears. The palate leads with melons and pineapples, balanced with calamansi at the finish. A truly superior dry white wine.
Variety: Pinot Grigio
A close relative of the Zinfandel grape, the nose is beautifully floral, with wild red berries, dried plums and cinnamon. The palate is rich, filled with concentrated fruit, almost jammy in the mid-palate with soft spice and tannins in the long, drawn-out finish.
No oak aging and a soft pressing lead to a wine that truly demonstrates the fruit and subtlety of this classic Italian grape. This great wine has a nose of blackberries, plums and cherries, with hints of spice. The palate is filled with cherries and plums, with cinnamon notes. A wine that is young and fresh.
