Pale in the glass as a young wine, but will develop pale gold tints with time in the bottle.
Year after year the fruit from this vineyard exhibits ripe lemon and grapefruit characters.
This is interwoven with subtle oak and lees and MLF derived creaminess.
Harmony and balance have become two of the hallmarks of our Swamp Reserve style.
This wine has fineness and structure, yet is also incredibly complex and long.
