WINEMAKER'S NOTES
Vibrant gold in color, with aromas of mandarin and ripe tropical fruits interwoven with barrel notes, sweet oak, toast, and spice. On the palate, the wine has bright, lively acidity, with sweet fruit flavors, good depth and complexity. The finish is clean and elegant, with a hint of minerality.
