Tasting Notes

On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. A complex & balanced wine with a mineral texture and long finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
