The year will be remembered for water restrictions and critical drought conditions. Still, no heat-waves were experienced, and there is the promise of good quality. The preceding winter started late, but was cold enough to allow adequate dormancy. For the second consecutive year, rainfall was lower than average and irrigation dams were not filled entirely.
Personal food pairing: With its natural acidity and acute texture, this wine pairs beautifully with seafood’s, seafood pasta and spicy foods such as Chinese and Thai dishes. Also goes extremely well with dishes containing acute seasonings, and salty eats such as pre-dinner canapés. Natural partner to goat’s cheese. On its own, a refreshing aperitif wine.
