WINEMAKING PROCESS

The grapes are gently pressed and the subsequent wine-making process takes place off the skins, with fermentation of the must at 17°C to 18°C. Fine sediment is left in with the wine at approximately 12°C to 13°C until the spring, to give it a more velvety and layered structure.

TASTING NOTE

It is a rich, bright straw yellow colour. There are hints of orange blossom in the elegant fragrance, alongside fresh, fruity scents of apple, pear and exotic fruit and subtle nutty tones. It is dry, graceful and rounded on the palate, with a delightful touch of bitterness.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

It is ideal with flavoursome seafood hors d’oeuvre or risotto, fish soup and stewed salt cod.
