Together they combine to give complexity on the nose which is enhanced by the fullness and structure of the wine on the palate. Ideal with veal, roast poultry, spaghetti carbonara, linefish, pork cutlets, perlemoen fried in butter, potatoes dauphinoise.

about the harvest: 100% Chardonnay grapes were harvested in the early morning to ensure coolness, crushed and lightly pressed.

in the cellar : The must was cold settled and then inoculated with cultured yeast and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Semi-reductive winemaking techniques were used to ensure minimal contact with oxygen, thus preserving fruit character. It was then filtered lightly before bottling. The wine is intended for early enjoyment, but will gain in complexity.
