More about this wine

How to serve it
10-12°C.
Food matches
The ideal accompaniment for a wide variety of fish dishes and breast of chicken, especially from the grill. Also serve as an apéritif or with antipasti.
An elegantly oaked white Merlot that really stands out from any of the other white Merlots we have tried.

In Depth

The must for this white Merlot is obtained from the free-run juice after crushing and partial de-stemming followed by a very gentle pressing. The must is fermented and matured in barriques of new French oak for about 8 months. A bâtonnage (stirring the lees) is performed 1-2 times a week in the period between alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Intense straw tinted yellow.

Bouquet: Complex and intense with notes of exotic fruits and Williams pear. Roasted hints like vanilla and light nuances of curry.

Palate: Smooth and rich, fruity, elegant and harmonious with a good structure. Mineral and persistent at the finish. Very good balance.
