Winemaking:

The grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed. The must is then cold settled and racked to barrels. The must undergoes a slow and gentle fermentation by indigenous yeast strains to enhance the aromatic qualities and rich texture. The Malo-lactic fermentation is natural and the wine remains on its fine lees to preserve all the aromas during 20 months.

Tasting notes:

Venus in Silk. A white grapefruit hued wine of liquid precision opens with a scent of honey blossom persuasion. The clear, spicy entry flows into the energetic, rich mid-palate. The taste of lemongrass and wildflower honey balances the rocky mineral passion core. The wine has a ravishing depth of character that ends with an elegant twist.

Food pairing:

As an aperitif, rich and creamy soups, escargot, soft-shelled crab, fresh-water bass, grilled trout, halibut, swordfish, game birds, pork chops. Creamy blue or soft, pungent cheese.
