Review date: February 3, 2016

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

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
