Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
With its pale green hue, this wine offers a fresh nose of asparagus, ferns and a hint of peppermint. On the palate, it presents a good balance, of the nerve, with a pretty character. Final frank straight and tense.
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.
Do you know ?
Harvests can be transferred through gravity or pumping systems. The gravity transfer helps preserve the grapes’ aromas and structures.
