Only the best grapes from the best parcels are selected for this Black Edition range. The wine spends 15 months on lees, having been fermented in French oak, giving the final product a rich and complex yet dry style, showcasing a wonderful degree of complexity and striking length. The palate offers rich, oily touches, with an aroma of soft figs, grilled hazelnuts and quince, building to a rounded and voluptuous, yet dry, finish.White Pinot Gris 12.5%
