Wine Description

Appearance:

Medium-pale yellow with yellow highlights.

Aromas:

The attractive nose recalls white tree fruits such as apricot, peach, and pear, joined by notes of grapefuit and tangerine, delicately balanced with toast and vainilla.

Palate:

Soft and attractive, with broad balance on the mid-palate, delicate top notes, and a characteristic slight bitterness on the medium finish. This is a uncomplicated wine for everyday enjoyment. It brings together the respective charms of Chardonnay and Viognier: the first provides voluptuousness in the mouth and the second, the intensity of flavors. The result is a captivating and original blend with solid fruit expression and a soft, but full mouthfeel.

Serving suggestions:

Pairs well with appetizers, mixed salads, pizza, quiche, and white meats served cold. It also shows well with seafood dishes in a variety of savory sauces. Enjoy cold (61ºF or 16ºC).
