This wine displays a limpid, pale yellow hue with golden highlights. Expressive on the nose, combining floral fragrances with aromas of white peach and exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit). Well-balanced and honest on entry, the wine is underpinned by freshness and powerful, long-lasting acidity on the finish, revealing a lovely minerality.
The grapes are pressed within 3 hours of harvesting. After settling for 12 to 24 hours, the must is placed in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks where fermentation takes place at between 15 and 20°C. At the end of fermentation, the first racking is carried out to remove the first lees. We begin bottling in the spring, following blending, clarification and stabilization treatments.
Food-wine matching is important. A successful pairing turns a meal into a hospitable and enjoyable occasion. Served between 8 to 10°C, you will love this characterful wine served at a cocktail buffet, or with fish, shellfish or poultry in a sauce.
