Viognier Contarini

Sold out

Quality dry white wine

Vineyard location and characteristics: The vineyards are located on the hills of Buje, at 220 to 250 metres above the sea, at the location of Contarini. The ideal microclimate allows for the growing of grapes that in their maturing retain the amount of acidity required for a fruity and well-balanced wine, while the mineral white soil sustains the smoothness with its exceptional mineral notes.

Vinification and maturing: A part of the must is subjected to the process of crio-maceration and then lightly pressed after which it is left to ferment at temperatures from 14 to 16 °C. With the help of fine lees, the wine is left to mature in stainless steel barrels until spring when it’s bottled.

Color: Straw yellow

Bouquet: Tropical fruit, minerals and citruses

Taste: Salty, mineral, fresh and extremely fruity, reminds of tropical fruit and melons with a finish of ripe melon skins

Gastronomic recommendation: Raw seafood with lemon peel, seafood with ripe nectarine tartar, fried seafood with piquant sauce, sushi, various dishes with exotic Asian spices based on seafood, poultry and vegetables
