Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color offers a pretty nose of candied quince, passion fruit, yellow fruit and frangipane. In the mouth, this wine has a beautiful fresh length.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Style ? Dry wines are acidic, lively and fresh while sweet wines are soft and feel round in the mouth.
Do you know ?
A sweet wine is a naturally sweet wine made from very ripe grapes containing a large amount of sugar.
