Tasting Notes

Pale-gold with light emerald flecks in the glass. On the nose, freshness exudes with notes of pear purée and lemon balm, while flint undertones provide complexity. The palate is balanced with chalky minerality, lovely mid-palate weight, crisp acidity and just a touch of residual sweetness for balance.

Pairs well with moderately spiced aromatic dishes, roasted poultry or pork, salty cheeses and a wide variety of seafood from lobster thermidor to smoked salmon or fresh snow crab.

Service Temperature: 6-8°C
