This wine is 100% Chardonnay made from biodynamic grapes sourced from 40-year-old vines in the La Mailloche vineyard which lies quite close to the town of Arbois in the Jura.

The name comes from the lovers Pamina and Tamino in Mozart’s rationalist enlightenment opera The Magic Flute.

The wine is matured in old oak barrels for 18 months prior to bottling.

There is a pleasant level of oxidative quality (from the time it has spent in old wooden barrels) in this beautifully balanced wine that displays hazelnuts and sherry aromas alongside a zing of citrus and vibrant minerality. – Living Wines
