Tasting notes

A deep gold colour with flecks of green. Strong notes of citrus and white flowers and, more subtly, honey. Its texture is opulent, well structured and, thanks to the wine’s natural richness it is very full in flavour. Oak-ageing gives a creamy roundness. The finish is long.

Food pairing

Pair with fish, shellfish and white meats, any with a creamy sauce (frogs legs also, we’re told – when in Rome)!
