An easy drinking, subtly scented, fresh and fruity wine with an attractive hint of almond in the background.
2017 saw a cold winter with abundant rainfall. In the spring there were pockets of frost which delayed budburst in some vineyards. Warm, sunny weather over the summer period helped to restore the normal growth of the vines and the grapes were harvested in a healthy condition with good varietal characteristics.
The vines are grown in chalky soils which are valued in viticulture for their excellent drainage. This, combined with the subsoil's ability to store water, provides the vine with a continuity of the right amount of water supply.
The grapes were de-stemmed and softly pressed. Each grape variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The cuvées were then blended and kept in tank until bottled.
A fresh apéritif wine which can be enjoyed with nibbles as well as sushi or fish dishes.
Garganega 70%, Chardonnay 30%
