Sourced exclusively from the single estate 'La Foa', near Girlan, this exceptional wine is reminiscent of a fine white Bordeaux from Pessac-Léognan. Delicate yet complex scents of pink grapefruit, elderflower, honeydew melon lead to a palate that is at once crisp, fresh and satisfyingly creamy in texture. Beautifully refined, lingering finish.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

Ideal companion for herbs, seafood, spicy white meat dishes and fresh cheese.

Winemaking

Harvest starts at the beginning of September when a high concentration of sugar has accumulated in the grapes and yield is restricted to 50 hl / ha. The fully ripe grapes are crushed, briefly left to soak and pressed. The juice is left to decant naturally. Half of the total quantity is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the other half in standard oak casks and barriques. Only the part vinified in oak is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. The final blend is made after the wine has aged for eight months on its fine lees. Light filtering and bottling follows.
