VINIFICATION: The grapes are picked by hand and placed into small lug boxes. At the cellar, berries are again sorted by hand before going into the press. After pressing, the juice spends about 24 hours on the skins. Most is then transferred into 1000-litre stainless steel tanks for fermentation, while a small amount (about twenty percent) goes into a ceramic egg for fermentation. After three months on the lees, a selection is made from the various tanks and blended with the ceramic egg component.
DESCRIPTION: A complex Sauvignon blanc, combining aromas and flavours of green pepper, asparagus and gooseberries with tropical fruit and hints of grapefruit on the finish. The palate is full, yet elegant.
FOOD: A serious food wine calling for white meats, from fish and shellfish to chicken and pork. Ideal with vegetarian dishes as well.
