A typical crispy & zesty, light bodied white wine from 100% Moschofilero that pairs excellently with Mediterranean cuisine dishes.
Straw Yellow in color with gray highlights. With aromas of rose and lime that gently cool the palate leaving a pleasant aftertaste with crisp acidity.
This is a classic cool climate Chardonnay made in a traditional style. Aromas of citrus, pears and nutmeg waft from the glass, with just a hint of vanilla and toasty oak from aging in barrel. Mouth-coating viscosity on the palate balanced by naturally fresh, crisp acidity.
