When we bought the building that is now the chateau heritage winery in 1997, the first vines that we cultivated were in the vineyard next to the winery. What we cultivated was a vineyard of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Viongnier. These vineyards are watched over by the statue of Saint Elias the patron saint of our winery. Now, 20 years later we decided to ferment the grapes of these vineyards with oak staves and the result was an amazing white wine we are extremely proud of.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant pale yellow color. Intense nose of yellow fruits and dried fruits with fine spices. Beautiful full mouth feel, rich with notes of oak confirming the nose of a superb elegance.
