Wine Review: This almost clear colored Soave opens with faint wet slate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic, zesty and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of lime and a touch of mild yellow grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity subtly fade away. This Soave would pair well with Asian Cuisine. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Color: Brilliant straw yellow colour with greenish hints. Perfume: The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Tasting notes: Good depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length. It makes an excellent partner for soups, starters, especially vegetable based such as asparagus, peas, egg-based dishes or seafood and fresh water fish dishes. Serve at 12°C
