Tasting Notes

  • Nose: A captivating bouquet bursts with aromas of ripe gooseberry, white peach, and freshly cut grass. Hints of citrus zest, flint, and delicate white flowers add layers of complexity.
  • Palate: The palate is at once vibrant and textured. Crisp acidity carries flavours of green apple, grapefruit, and a pronounced limestone-driven minerality. Subtle notes of passionfruit and a touch of salinity linger on a long, elegant finish.

  • Salads: Crisp summer salads with mixed greens, shaved fennel, radish, and a light vinaigrette.
  • Poultry: Roasted chicken with herbs brings out the wine's richer notes.
