2016

In the land of encounters
A rich wine that goes beautifully with dishes that feature the best of both land and sea.
In matters of taste, there can be no disputes – and neither in matters of smell. It could be the floral aroma of violets or roses, the subtle intensity of cloves or nutmeg, herbs, or the freshness of citrus fruits.
A smooth cuvée with complex aromas.
