Winemaker's Notes

Bright golden tinges highligh the bold straw-yellow color. Hints of ripe tropical fruit, seductive notes of sweet spices, and peach create a distinctive nose. The palate is mouth-filling, warm and velvety, and beautifully balanced.

Pair this ultimately versatile wine with fish, rice and pasta dishes, and light appetizers. Its body and structure make it a good companion to roast beef and baked seabream.

Sliced apples, apricots, chalk, blanched almonds and lemon pith on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with a creamy texture and crisp acidity. Stones and almonds on the rounded finish. Drink now.
