The grapes grow on clay/limestone soils with a southern exposure. The grapes macerate for 2 hours at a low temperature, followed by a light press and a cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks.TASTING NOTES
Pale lemon color with aromas of pineapple, pears and citrus. The palate is round and fruity, dominated by exotics fruits. A delightful aperitif that is a wonderful accompaniment to a variety of salads and appetizers, chicken/rice with a pineapple and coconut sauce, pork ribs with honey sauce, and fruit based desserts.
