The wine starts with a greenish-gold colour and possesses energetic aromatics that seem to leap from the glass. Vibrant citrus and floral notes weave around a subtle core of crushed stones and Anjou pear. The rocky soil of the Soberanes Vineyard gives this wine minerality and texture unique to this stony site. Select vines from the 2014 vintage were fermented Foudre (in a large oval oak cask), which adds depth and focus. The palate unfolds into a seemingly endless plateau of texture that expands into a beautiful and crisp finish.
