Blend:

42% Grenache blanc
40% Ugni blanc / Clairette
18% Vermentino

Winemaking:

The grapes are harvested at dawn to preserve freshness and color. A light direct pressing is carried out with a pneumatic press and the settling is done at 12°C.
Vinification takes place in temperature- controlled stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks minimum.
Bottling takes place in January.

Tasting notes:

The colour presents crystalline reflections. The nose opens on notes of pear, peach and lemon.
In the mouth, the forthright attack is marked by its amplitude and vivacity; it evolves towards notes of apricot.
The finish is long and expresses a beautiful complexity.

Wine and food pairings:

Seafood platter (oysters, crabs, whelks).
Hake fillet, lemon and dill sauce.
Lemon meringue tart and, of course, ideal as an aperitif to whet your palate.
