It displays pale golden colour. Youthful on the nose with a pleasant fruity aroma and good varietal character. Lyche, ripe peaches. Medim sweet on the palate with balanced acidity and good freshness due to fine CO2 bubbles. Nicely balances, with medium finish.
It goes well with spicy foods, especially Asian such as spicy salads or dishes with curry sauces. can be very much enjoyed on its own, even as a slightly different aperitif. Wine that inspires creativity. In a top Dutch restaurant, it is served with slightly smoked red gurnard fish with watermelon and verbena, dash-bouillon, seaweed, shaved citrus-ice and sake.
2022 winter was mild, with almost no snow. February and March were cold to postpone bud burst. Spring was warm with enough rain, flowering started on 1st of June and finished slowly, with no issues. Summer was hot and grape ripening was accelerated. At the end of August, it cooled down slightly. Harvest started early in September and took place fast, without problems. Quantity was high and grapes were of excellent quality, similar to vintage 2021.
In stainless steel tanks, matured on the fine lees.
Drink while young, from 2023-2025.
WINE IS CULTURE AND ALWAYS HAS VALUE AS A LINK TO SOCIETY.
