Our first Private Selection, crafted from the ripest lots of our best blocks was fermented in both barrel and tank.
Exciting fragrances of orange blossom, tangerine zest, apple and pear merge with delightful aromas of a pastry kitchen. The palate evolves into a tropical fruit medley with an elegant, complex finish.
