A note of woodsy smoke underscores flavors of tangy plum, candied kumquat, white peach and fresh ginger in this mouthwatering Champagne, backed by firm, citrusy acidity. Drink now through 2019. 5,000 cases made. –AN (08/31/2014)

Lovely, delicate nose of roasted pumpkin and chestnuts with pink grapefruit. The palate continues with the grapefruit flavours, adeptly blended with hints of cinnamon, papaya and lime.

Soft, toasted nut and creamy apple lead on to a palate of bright candied fruit.
