Deep golden yellow. Fruit on the nose, but quite evolved, showing ripe stone fruit, tart cider apple notes and dried floral notes. Lactic notes on the palate with a bready, yeasty character to it from the ageing. The beauty of this wine remains on how fresh it stays after a long ageing, with vibrant acidity and an umami finish.
A special wine that can endure a wide arrange of food pairings. From its lactic notes it pairs beautifully with pasta and plates with creamy sauces. Its strong umami finish is a perfect companion to dried fruits, fried fish and hearty meals.
