Bouquet

The aroma is dominated by toasty yeast characters and some developed Pinot notes

Palate

The dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend shows its influence upfront and in the mid palate. Up front the bready yeasty characters blend with a more aged Pinot wine character. In the mid palate subtle berry notes meld with a nuttiness that fills the palate. As it lingers a citrus note becomes apparent as preserved lemons and marmalade. The acid from the Chardonnay adds a zing that leaves a clean refreshing finish

Food Matches

Always great for pre dinner drinks or would be comfortable with game meats as well as poultry
