Winemaker's Notes

“Sec” for dry, ‘Si” for Yes! Fruity, crisp and fresh. A delicate Sylvaner combined with the seductive scent of Muscat. An elegant nose with notes of fresh fruits. The lemony, crispy palate creates liveliness, freshness and youth. Resistance is futile!

Enjoy as an apperitif, pair with poultry, sushi or a cold buffet.
