Tasting Notes: Aromas and flavors of green apple & tropical fruits, balanced by subtle oak, cinnamon & vanilla from barrel aging. With a mouth-filling body and balanced acidity, delivers a medium-long, refreshing finish.
Galaxy Notes: Estate grown. 50% of the wine was barrel fermented in French, American, & Eastern European oak. The other 50% was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the natural fruit flavors. The barrel fermented portion was aged sur lie for 8 months and batonnage, the art of stirring the barrels, was performed monthly. This adds a creamy note to the wine and greatly enhances the texture. From the remaining 50% stainless steel portion, half was aged on lees for 8 months while the other half was racked clean to preserve the fresh fruit character.
