About the wine:

The vines used for this wine are from our organically certified vineyards and come from two different terroirs: Chardonnay and Vermentino are grown on limestone soils, while the Viognier comes from vineyards with silty soils. Both sites are at around 1000 metres above sea level.

Grape Varietals: The 2021 vintage is a blend of Viognier (40%), Vermentino (30%) and Chardonnay (30%). The Vermentino, native to Sardinia and Corsica and thus well suited to the Eastern Mediterranean climate, adds citrus, mineral and even a marine character. It is moderate in alcohol and combines well with the richer Chardonnay and fragrance of the aromatic Viognier.

Winemaking: The grapes were fermented in stainless steel vats at a temperature between 19°C and 21°C to maintain freshness and the varietal’s characteristics. It was then blended, cold-stabilized and bottled during march 2022.

Alcohol: 13%

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Pale lemon-gold

Aroma: The 2021 blend of the 3 white varietals results in a wine full of fragrance - pineapple, pear, passionfruit and herbs with an underlying mineral note.

Palate: Flavours of pineapple, pear and apricots with some floral and herby notes of basil and thyme. There is a rich honeyed mouthfeel but at the same time it is vibrantly fresh with good acidity; deliciously drinkable lightly chilled, within two to three years from the harvest. To be enjoyed with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, or as an aperitif.
