Tasting Notes

This wine is pale rose in colour with delicate golden hues, filled with the succulent aromas of ripe apricot, honeysuckle, nashi pears and candied citrus. Biscotti and cream flavours enhance the soft texture and intriguing complexity, creating a wine that is engaging, well-balanced and refreshing.

Food Matching

This wine is delicious with seafood such as seared scallops or pan-fried halibut steak. Enjoy it with white meats such as roast chicken or pork tenderloin, and with creamy pastas made with white cheese sauce.

Cellaring

Ready to drink now, or will develop over the next few years. Serve lightly chilled.

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine was sourced from 12 year old vines planted on limestone and sandy gravel located on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 300 metres. The grapes were machine harvested cool in the morning then pressed into stainless tanks where fermentation took place over 15 days with the selected yeast. 10% of the juice was transferred into French oak barrels (three years old) for fermentation with wild yeast over four weeks. Both fractions were kept on lees contact for one month, and after five months, the wine was prepared for bottling. No fining agents were used in order to preserve the lively colour and natural fruit aromas.
