The grapes are left to ferment on the skin and this fermentation results in a wine with a deep coppery yellow colour. The bouquet is intense and reminiscent of acacia blossoms. The wine is quite fruity when it is younger, but with age it will develop notes of dry hay, fresh walnuts and toasted almonds. It is dry and gentle, with a lingering palate of Artemisia and herbs in general.
Try this unusual wine to cheeses or a risotto with saffron.
