WINEMAKING

Controlled skin contact - pressing and short settling - alcoholic fermentation (50% in oak barrels and 50% in vats). Alcoholic fermentation made in oak contributes to a richer mouth - feel and develops volume and aromatic flavours into the wine - Ageing on the lees in French oak barrels with regular stirring for 2 to 3 months before bottling.

 

TASTING NOTE

Pale straw yellow with green highlights. Flattering nose with hints of tropical fruit, litchi, and pineapple. Nice floral notes appear when agitated. Seductive, fine, and elegant with lots of fruity aromas (citrus) and a long and refreshing aftertaste.

 

PAIRING

Seabass fillet rose with lobster coulis, gratin of salmon, sole and turbot. Best between 10°C and 12°C / 50°F and 54°F.
