Tasting Notes

The nose is fine and presents a great aromatic richness with notes of sweet spices (cinnamon, cardamom) and exotic fruits( mango, papaya, and guava). On the palate, it shows a great complexity: supple and ample, with persistence on spicy and mango flavours.

This wine accompanies aperitifs, Asian cuisine and exotic food, sweet and sour dishes, strong cheeses, or tarts and fruit based desserts.

Vinification

-100% Hand harvesting
-Extended and soft pressing
-4-6 weeks controlled fermentation in stainless steel

Vintage 2018
Very mild temperatures in mid-April encouraged rapid budding and very strong vine growth. Mild and sunny flowering period produced grapes of a nice size – a good omen for the harvest conditions. An exceptionally sunny and hot summer followed. The wines of the 2018 vintage are characterised by structure and fullness and retained an astonishing freshness despite the hot August days.
