    Detailed Description

    This has a deep staining golden hue that looks a bit like chardonnay with a touch of age on it. It is packed full of flowers and ripe stone fruits with beautifully integrated wood. This is so seamless and contemplative on the nose. The palate is uber-concentrated and pure fruit with so much length it is staggering. This drinks so impressively at this early stage, I can't wait to revisit this in a couple of years! 97 points and just a gem of a wine.

    • Wine Advocate: Tectumque means “shelter” in Latin.

    • Vinous:  Just bottled, the 2017 White Wine The Tectumque is rich, unctuous and full of character. Dried pear, almond, honey and wild flowers all infuse this rich, flamboyant wine. The 2017 is built on a core of co-fermented Roussanne and Petit Manseng, which yields a white with intriguing layers of savory complexity. I find that the Sine Qua Non whites need time to come together in the cellar and show their best with at least a few years of bottle age. I suspect that will be the case here as well.
