Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated and rich, yet its balance is remarkable, feeling controlled and precise in its definition. Tropical fruit on the bouquet. This is a classic dessert wine with the merit of being light in alcohol, elegant and very fruity. Silky and smooth texture, lots of tropical fruit, delicious, refreshing acidity. The finish exhibits both density and detail, showing increasingly prominent notes of slate.

This wine is "liquid dessert", drinks perfectly with light (not too sweet) desserts, after dessert or instead of dessert.
