Pillar Box White is straw yellow with a green tinge. Comprised of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Verdelho, each variety contributes its own uniqueness to this blend. Early picks of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc give the nose a lifted, grassy edge with lemon citrus zest, while the later picks of Chardonnay and Verdelho offer riper passion fruit, melon and honeysuckle blossom. The fresh and vibrant fruit comes through onto the palate and is evenly balanced with racy, minerally acid. Some extended yeast lees contact and a small portion of wild yeast fermentation adds richness and layers of creaminess, enhancing the persistence of the finish.
