"Organically-grown suitcase clones from the island of Madeira grow in Tom Morgan’s Evina Vineyard, a sandy vineyard surrounded by nut and fruit orchards. After Lorenza foot-tread a portion of the grapes and left them to macerate, the whole cluster-pressed juice was split into three fractions: stainless tank, stainless barrels, and neutral oak barrels. The skin-contact portion was barreled-down to neutral oak later. Slow, spontaneous fermentations in the different vessels gives the final blend the precise layers of a samurai sword while keeping flavors uplifting and complex. Soft and crisp with fragrant chamomile, jasmine, oyster shell, meringue, and lemon zest."
