As always, the Allegra is fully barrel fermented and aged for 11 months in new French puncheons. Vibrant stone fruit with hints of citrus dance across the palate with support from some toast and spice from the oak. Allegra is concentrated and finessed, a wine that is both immediately appealing but will benefit from bottle age.Awards:
50/50% P58/Dijon chardonnay clones, the vines planted in '81; hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented, matured in new French oak. Exceedingly powerful and complex. Needs to be chilled on a warm/hot day, but is quite something.
