Very bright lemon yellow in color. The nose is big on fruit character and driven by the dominant Pinot Noir in the blend. As the first wave of aroma subsides you start to see the yeast character coming through which then follows through to the palate adding extra complexity and toasty richness.
The Pinot gives the wine its lovely structure and lingering flavor, whilst the Chardonnay helps add finesse and the fresh citrus and mineral finish.
