Overview

A selected Moschofilero from estate grown grapes at 750m. Fermentation starts in tanks and is completed in oak barrels, giving it extra structure and complexity. Exquisite exotic nose with litchi, jasmine, starfruit, lime, grapefruit, flowers and rose petals. Moderate alcohol (12.5%), palate with extract, volume, structure and concentration. Its high acidity and aromatic profile make it ideal to pair with food and especially Asian cuisine: noodles, Thai stir-fry, curry dishes, samosas and spring rolls with peppers. Wonderfully elegant and fine, with a long finish. Chilling in reefers for 24h, cold extraction for 8 hours, crushing, pressing and fermentation. 70% of the wine has matured in barrels over fine lees for 3 months.
