Sensory profile Appears a luminous, deep straw yellow. Smooth impressions of ripe and dried fruit immediately pour from the glass, evidence of grapes at a perfect peak of ripeness. Fragrant sweet almond occupies pride of place, complemented by beguiling scents of fig marmalade, chestnuts, and pear juice, lifted by hints of jasmine. All of the aromatic components fuse into a multi-layered, inebriating complex that seems reluctant to fade. The palate boasts a striking minerality supported by appreciable weight. Savoury impressions of toasted nuts predominate, progressing into a pleasantly bitterish finish, where notes of almond serve as a common thread binding together nose and palate.


Pairings Showcases the qualities of egg-based dishes and sweet cakes, and as well as those with legumes and grains. Superb in accompaniment with grilled or baked fish.
