*Vintage may vary by location*

Brilliant and intense yellow whit golden hints. Characterful wine, reminiscent of exotic fruit and nuts on the nose; soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice, length and elegance.

Makes an excellent partner to complex dishes, even with strong flavours particularly risottos such as porcini, or celery, squash and almond, salt cod and other fish including salmon, scallops and crab.

A different, fuller-weighted brood, boasting ample stone fruits, nutmeg and truffle. Savvy use of oak (tonneaux and larger format French) and extended lees ageing. A vineyard purchased in 1976, situated directly behind the town's castle. Lower altitude, with clay and limestone (rather than the more pervasive volcanics), finding effortless confluence with a winemaking approach that has long-defined this fuller-weighted, late-harvested, highly textural expression. While an outlier stylistically, there is often a fleck of botrytis, all tamarind and dried mango, that melds with the underlying tension to impart generosity and evince authority.

This wine is so complex and intriguing you have to just sit with it. Aromas of roasted apples drizzled with honey, dried flowers and candied orange zest are just the tip of the wine. It continues to evolve until you run out and want more. The palate has an amazing texture with weight yet acidity to balance out the richness of the ripe orchard fruits, baking spices and orange blossom flavors. Enjoy it now or be rewarded with more time in the cellar. Drink now–2035.

A statuesque white, with up-front generosity to the flavors of poached quince, baked pineapple and grilled macadamia nut, which are nicely reined in by well-integrated acidity and a sense of verticality. Fragrant, with notes of honeysuckle and lime blossoms enriched by hints of spun honey and saffron, this is long and lovely.
