TASTING NOTE

Straw yellow with green highlights. An intense, quite persistent bouquet with fruity notes of banana and pear. As it ages, the wine develops a nutty aroma. On the palate it is dry and harmonious, with good acidity that makes the wine refreshing and easy-drinking.

The vineyards are situated 450-550 metres above sea level and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a volcanic character, rich in minerals and trace elements.

The flavours obtained in the vineyard are then preserved in the winery. The must is chilled immediately and fermented at New Zealand temperatures (12-14°C) rather than the higher temperatures (18-20°C) prevalent in Italy. The wine undergoes lees stirring and remains in stainless steel tank until bottling. This results in much purer flavours being captured in the wine
