"Bingo, on point. Pale, pure, slatey fresh, balanced, lively, layered, full of finesse and class." - Justin Knock MW

"Youthful and vibrant with intense notes of forest fruits, a touch herbal and with a hint of sweet spice. On the palate it is harmonious and combines wonderful vibrancy of fruit with a sophisticated silky structure that leads to a persistent finish. Pure, precise and delicious." - Dirceu Vianna Junior MW

  • All the vineyards for this wine are sustainably farmed, hand-harvested, and one of them is certified biodynamic.
  • Drink now, but will age beautifully for 5-10 years.
  • Would elevate any roasted poultry or game.
