Tasting notes: Carrying in its genes the spirit of Transylvania this wine is made in a organic and vegan environment. This is the place where the grape feels at home and it really shines revealing ripe pears, yellow peach and apples. The second layers show on the palate a scent of white flowers and ends with a hint of bay leaves and sage. In the mouth it is full-bodied with an excellent balance and smoothness. Let’s bring the flowers’ breezes from Transylvania to Amsterdam.
Food suggestion: Ideal pairing for risotto with shrimps, courgette and limes or a vegetarian lasagna.
