This 'Empreinte du Temps' white wine is made from the Grenache grape and benefits from oxidative aging (a process where evaporation in the barrel is not replaced so a surface air pocket forms, therefore accentuating the oxidation). The grapes come from low yield, 77 year old vines that are organically grown (but not yet certified). They are hand harvested and fully de-stemmed before being vinified in used oak barrels and vats.
The wine is golden in colour and it is rich and complex in flavour, with mineral, honey and hazelnut notes.
This wine is great with olives, smoked fish and cheese. It can also be enjoyed on its own or with a nutty dessert.
