Taste: Bright pale yellow color with green tones, that denote its youth. On the nose, the wine exudes fresh, clean and intense aromas that include citrus (lemon and mandarin zest), freshly cut apple, and pineapple. The palate has a perfect balance of freshness and acidity that gives the wine a lively and vibrant character. The flavors of the citrus, apple and pineapple continue on the palate, accompanied by a subtle mineral touch that finishes dry and clean.
Pairing: Your new favorite picnic wine to pair with a wide range of dishes, particularly those that feature fresh vegetables, appetizer fare/informal meals (check out the two below), seafood and white meat. Its refreshing acidity and fruity notes meld well with the variety of foods that can adorn an appetizer course, and complement the delicate flavors of fish (salmon, tuna, white fish), shrimp, and scallops, as well as white meats such as chicken and pork. This wine also pairs well with creamy pasta dishes, risottos, and salads with vinaigrette dressings.
For a perfect pairing, try serving this wine with grilled shrimp skewers seasoned with lemon, garlic, and parsley. The wine's tropical fruit flavors and subtle mineral touch complement the smoky and slightly acidic notes of the grilled shrimp, while its refreshing acidity cleanses the palate and balances the dish's richness.
