Clear gold in the glass, this wine evokes the flavors of a baked apple or a poached pear, although the wine is quite dry. Aromas of tree and stone fruit fill the glass, with hints of hyacinth, orange zest, flint, bananas, talc, and Red Hot candies. On the palate, mouth-filling flavors of apples and pears are followed by cinnamon, clove, lemon curd, and caramel.

The grapes were harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed. The juice settled overnight, then was racked to a stainless tank for cool fermentation. When fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the fine lees until bottling the following autumn. The wine was bottled under cap and aged in tirage bins until it was disgorged in November 2021 and finished with 5 g/L dosage.
