Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The robe is a light golden yellow with green reflections, of average intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent.

Aroma

The nose is frank, pleasant and intense. Elegant, we perceive a dominant of candied, over-ripe, fruity, exotic aromas, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, spices and candied ginger. Airing amplifies these aromas and reveals mango, cardamom and a light floral note of roses.The nose reflects a beautiful maturity of the grapes in a flattering and exuberant register. Very nice complexity.

Palate

The onset in the mouth is moderately rich, fleshy and soft. The alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on a frank and vivacious medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of aromas reveals the exotic character of this wine, with mango, pineapple, grapefruit, flowers, rose, spices, candied ginger and a fine touch of chlorophyll. We perceive also a hint of bitterness. The finish has good length, 9-10 caudalies and is finely vivacious.The balance of this wine is soft, well balanced by its vivacity. The range of aromas is splendid, concentrated and well balanced. A very beautiful wine.

Food Matching

I recommend enjoying this wine with spicy dishes, pumpkins soup with ginger, artichoke salad with orange, exotic poultry and shrimp stew with coconut milk.
