Light salmon pink with fine mousse and a suitable foamy colour when poured. Aromas are distinctively secondary and are part of the Apogee style; induced by our oxidative juice handling. Cherry liqueur, raspberry compote and salty mineral- apple with a touch of coffee from the oak. The palate is mid-body, but surprising flavour richness on the mid-palate due to the high Pinot Noir content from this special part of the vineyard. Chardonnay freshens the finish with it's citrus tang. A touch of firm tannin from the French oak will soften with bottle age.
