Wine Spectator 90 Points
A stony undertow and well-meshed acidity frames the flavors of yellow apple, apricot, anise, slivered almond and honeycomb in this bright and balanced version. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now through 2018.
The grapes are separated from the stems and cool temperature maceration / fermentation is completed in around 10 days. After pressing, the wine is allowed to settle, then racked into stainless steel tanks where it goes through the natural process of malolactic fermentation, which is the conversion of harsher Malic acid to a softer Lactic acid. The presence of Lactic acid promotes a subtle rounder wine that is more approachable and less abrasive on the palate.
