Tasting notes

A rich, golden colour with copper/green tints, gives way to a complex aroma of wild flowers, exotic fruits and honey. These flavours remain on the palette, and the body is soft, silky and round. A serious wine with a long, persistent finish.

Food pairing

Quite a robust wine, pair with fish – mackerel, monkfish, or poultry
