The fully mature grapes spend two months on straw mats before being pressed. It exhibits a light gold color with a texture resembling molasses. Despite being aged in 100% new oak no wood is discernible. Its astonishing white truffle-scented nose includes notions of coffee marmalade and creme brulee. Extraordinarily dense and thick with surprisingly good underlying acidity this is a remarkable wine. Sadly only 100 cases exist. It will last for 100 years but it will be impossible to resist in its youth.
