Tasting Notes:  This organic, orange wine is a wine of longevity and complexity which develops with time in a glass.  Dreamy golden yellow.  Aromas of ripe yellow-green fruits, flowers and Mediterranean herbs appear on the nose. The aromas are enhanced on the palate: pears, apples, apricots, elderberries, sage and a slight hint of vanilla and honey emerge. Great minerality and freshness with a medium body.  Despite the yellow tannin, the texture is finely tuned and the wine is well balanced.

 

Serving Recommendation: 13 - 15°C

 

Pairing Recommendation:  Paella, pasta, poultry dishes and stir fry.

Vinification:  Grapes are hand picked, de-stemmed and gravity fed with their skins into large wooden barrels for maceration, which lasts from 7 to 20 days and starts with natural yeasts at a temperature at 30° C. Pigeage is done at least three times a day during which period wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.  After pressing it is aged for 2 years in big oak barrels (1000 to 2500 l).
