Uruguay

White, Fruity, Medium Bodied, Unoaked

Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Moscato

The blend in its own right is unique but what makes the wine is the way grapes were harvested. The Chardonnay is picked very early, coming in at around 11% alcohol to take advantage of its piecing acidity, almost like a base wine for a sparkler, the Gewürztraminer picked at full ripeness, while the Moscato is allowed to ripen to an almost raisin stage.

The end result is wine with a lovely floral lift of lychee and white orchard fruits -  it’s delicious and vibrant with a beautiful, lightly creamy texture leading to a clean, lingering finish, everything in balance.
