A wine created by combining the natural and complementary attributes of the chosen varieties rather than applying winemaking magic to create complexity and structure. Pinot grigio provides pear flavour and savouriness; riesling contributes acidity and minerality, while chardonnay rounds the palate weight, and sauvignon blanc livens the palate. The splash of aleatico heightens the aromatic structure of this unique blend.
Opens with delicate aromas of elderflower amplified by secondary notes of pear and fresh zesty lime. The palate displays both minerality and balancing rich flavours, plus a touch of oak, complemented by a deliberate frame of natural grape tannins underpinning a persistent, lingering palate. A serendipitous blend.
