This wine was a huge hit at Bounty Hunter HQ for its careful balance between warm, buttered toast and cool varietal brightness. 40% new French oak meets 40% malolactic fermentation to bring out the butterscotch without losing the thread of fruit-driven acidity that weaves through to the soft, pretty finish. Aromas of Fuji apple and light Caribbean rum lead to soft pineapple and vanilla on the palate. Only 125 cases were made, so don’t wait too long to claim yours!

Intense burnt caramel, grilled pineapple, toffee apple, brown butter and toasted coconut on the nose. Full-bodied with a round, buttery palate. Toasty and opulent, yet balanced. Drink now.
