Color - Brilliant, light straw
Bouquet - “;The Violettes” is named for its wild flower bouquet: possessing delicate aromatics of
peaches, dried fruit and white flowers.
Taste - An elegant, dry, and wine with rich flavors of acaia flowers, yellow peaches and exotic
fruits. Rich in a style that is texturally similarly to Chardonnay with a long finish.
Grapes are sourced from 20-year-old vines with low yields of about 35hl/hectare, or 14hl/acre. All work in the vineyards is done manually and without the use of pesticides or irrigation, respecting the local environment.
|Wine maker notes
|The wine undergoes controlled fermentation and maceration at 59ºF, 80% in stainless steel tanks and 20% in barrels. The wine then spends 6 months on lees, 70% in tanks, and 30% in one-, two- and three-year-old barrels.
|Lovely as an aperitif or with seafood appetizers. Great with iceberg, Caesar, or chopped salads, chicken dishes & crab cakes.
