WINEMAKING PROCESS

Grapes are lightly pressed and cryomacerated for 12 - 14 hours to increase their aromas. The must is fermented at a controlled temperature of 17° - 18°C. The wine is then left on fine deposits for approximately six months at 12° - 13°C to optimize its aromatic composition.

TASTING NOTE

Bright straw yellow with greenish tones.
A highly personalized fragrance in which vegetable tones pervade such as sage, pepper and tomato leaf are accompanied by the luscious perfumes of apricot, grapefruit and exotic fruit. Rich inviting flavour, decisively aromatic taste which lingers indefinitely.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Wonderful with fish appetizers, shellfish salads, fine steamed or oven-baked foiled fish or egg dishes or with fresh asparagus.
