Grape harvest and winemaking:

The grapes have been picked up by hand at full ripeness, during the first or second week of September. Each variety has been separately fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13- 15˚C. The Romanian Tamaioasa variety was kept in contact with the skin in a closed press for eight hours to to extract the aroma. To give complexity and a buttery aftertaste to the wine, it was aged on lees for 2 months with lees movement during this period .

This blend has developed perfumes aromas of citrus and rose. Fresh and fruity in taste, with hints of red grapefruit, and a lasting and well-balanced finish. It can be served well chilled (6-8 C) with souffles, fish and seafood, with Asian dishes.
