Multi-faceted, solidly structured and infused by an idea of light.
Summer 2015 was characterized by higher than average temperatures and lack of rainfalls. The weather situation induced us to an early harvest epoch thoughts. The heat, however, did slow the grapes development therefore we had an average harvest’s epoch which began on September 1 and ended on October 27. We immediately recognize the potential of an absolutely promising vintage when we saw the grapes quality brought to the cellar. The whites wines show enveloping and caressing fruit features.
Destemming of late-harvested, but still perfectly sound grapes; 12 hour cold maceration, after which the grapes were pressed, underwent natural clarification; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of 18° C; five-month aging on the fine lees, filtration and bottling in March.
Sloping vineyard with a southerly exposure at 450 – 500 meters above sea level. Loamy, chalky gravel with eroded porphyry.
– light, golden yellow
– intense nose, rose blossoms, lychee, cloves, cinnamon, a hint of sage,
complex and multi-faceted
– dense volume on the palate, very clean and direct, tropical fruit on
the lingering finish
This wine pairs well with light appetizers, fish dishes and also as an aperitif.
