The grapes, picked fully ripe and undamaged, were soft-crushed and the resulting must racked into stainless steel tanks to ferment for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 16-18° C. The wine then remained on the lees for several weeks to acquire volume and complexity before going into bottle.
A star-bright straw yellow introduces an intense, whistle-clean nose that marries the classic pear and apple-like fragrances with elegant hints of florality and citrus. The palate, dry on entry, reveals substantial structure and lingering, refreshing savouriness that make this a versatile wine of outstanding personality.
A fine aperitif that is also a superb match for seafood salads, meat or fishbased starters served with succulent sauces, full-flavoured soups and even white meats.
