Currently 45 hectares from six year old vines, although they have plans to plant an extra 25 hectares. This is their first attempt to make a white, and the result is pretty impressive. In fact it wouldn’t be out of place in a Burgundy line-up. A sophisticated style displaying ripe apple and pear fruit aromas. On the palate it has a lovely buttery and creamy texture from the oak, with balanced ripe fruit and fine acidity to keep it alive and fresh. Only 300 bottles were made - so a very rare find.
