Vinification and ageing  
Grapes are picked into baskets and then delivered by tipper trailer.
Processing is by crusher/de-stemmer, with removal of damaged grapes.

During all these operations the wine is tested by an authorised laboratory and an oenologist.

A very heady, almond bouquet. It is rich on the palate, very consistent, with great roundness touching on unctuousness.

Matching with food  
As an aperitif and with fish.

Keeping potential
