Tasting Notes: Bright straw color. The elegant and expressive nose is dominated by citrus and stone fruits framed by fresh herbs and minerality. Robust and round on the palate with generous concentration of fruits. It tastes rich but is utterly fresh with a persistent mineral-driven finish.
Food Pairings: Fresh and robust, this wine is incredibly versatile and has a special affinity to anything with strong herbal notes (like pesto or salsa verde) or citrus (like ceviche or mussels in a lemon-‐‑butter sauce). Ideal with many seafood preparations – from raw oysters to grilled shrimp – and white meats like suckling pig.
