Tasting Notes: Straw yellow color with greenish brushstrokes, intense aroma with sweet exotic fruit notes, shades of magnolia, elderberry, and almond kernels. A dry wine, it opens with an agreeable sensation of well-balanced freshness, the mellowing, with a long, clean finish. The mouth feel is mellow but livery due to its well-balanced acidity.
Winemaking: The grape are hand harvested after their level of ripeness on the vine is checked. Destemmed and chilled to 12° C. Soft pressed. The wine then undergoes a long rest on the yeast, which is periodically resettled, until it is bottled.
Food Pairing: A classical match for fish, ideal for dishes such as grilled prawns and sea bass: not to mention fish to soups. Mediterranean style baked fish. Excellent as an aperitif
