about the harvest: Chardonnay grapes with peachy flavours are selected for good flavour intensity.

in the cellar : Carefully selected oak is chosen for the months of maturation. White oak roasted at spesific temperatures releases vanillin which marries with the tropical Chardonnay fruit to to push the vanilla-like flavours to the front. Over the years, while tasting through Chardonnay barrels in our underground cellar, we would come upon some barrels displaying the most attractive vanilla notes. Our curiosity led us on a journey, exploring the source of this distinctive vanilla profile, and the seed was sown to capture this enchanting essence in a bottle
