Winemaking

Extended lees stirring and hint of French oak provide another layer of complexity culminating in a wine of great length and depth. 20% of the wine was barrel fermented and underwent regular lees stirring which imparts a luxurious mouthfeel and a great depth of interest. The remainder was fermented in stainless steel to preserve varietal freshness.

Food pairing:

Marinated and grilled octopus salad, Battered fish and chips, pasta alle vongole, Risotto primavera, Crab salad with cucumber
