With aromas of grilled pineapple, fresh baked apple, slight citrus peel, custard, pastry, hints of vanilla bean and crème brûlée. The palate shows bright, tropical flavours balanced by a creamy texture leading to a long, complex, warm finish. The 2018 vintage benefited from a very hot summer, leading to ripe fruit with complex flavours. The grapes were harvested in late September with a portion set aside to dry for 1 month in the traditional Appassimento method for added depth and complexity. With fermentation and age taking place in French oak barrels for 9 months. Drinking beautifully now, this wine will continue to evolve well through to the year 2025.
