Winemaking and ageing
Hand picked only, whole bunch pressed, the grape must is cooled to 4°C to leave a maximum of residual sugar.  The wine is then aged on lees for four months and then pumped-over.
Wine description
With a strong yellow colour, the nose displays exotic aromas and candied citrus flavours. The ripe fruit aromas, (quince and candied fruits) are also present on the palate, accompanied by flavours of spice and pepper.  Well-balanced, rich and generous, it has a soft end.  A wine that ages well.
Wine and food pairing
Appetizers, vegetable dips, spicy salads (Mexican, Moroccan, Indian), fish cooked with strong or spicy ingredients (curry), exotic recipes (full-bodied flavours, spicy, sweet and sour), tandoori chicken, curried pork, tacos, strong cheeses and an After-Dinner wine.
