Winemaker's Notes

Grape Varieties: Viognier, Roussanne

Bouquet: The original blend of these two noble grape varieties from the Rhone Valley endows the wine with exceptional freshness and balance. The Viognier offers elegance and aromatic complexity, while the Roussanne brings structure to the wine.

Serving suggestions: Perfect as an aperitif, it will also complement fish, shellfish, pasta in cream-based sauce and poultry.
