White stone fruits with saline minerals. Dry and fruity.
Tasting Notes: The nose is expressive with aromas of white flowers, particularly Jasmine, peach and exotic fruits. The palate is rich and balanced with plenty of volume and a zingy, saline finish.
As the selected vines are planted in Miocene sands and limestone scree of altitude 200 for 450 metres, they are subject to a wide range of temperatures over the day which gives the wine its freshness.
Harvesting is carried out at night, by machine, to limit oxidation and preserve the aromatic qualities. Total destemming followed by a gentle pressing. Cold static settling. Low temperature alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine is protected from oxygen to preserve its aromatic potential.
Food Match : Grilled or roasted white meats, fish & shellfish, salads and creamy blue cheeses. A Pint of Shrimps or a Goats Cheese Salad.
