a recognisable personal note from the prominent mineral character of the terroir
Amber Gris Época
Colour: Medium amber colour, reminiscent of dry onion skins, a slight hazy note.
Aroma: The bouquet is intense, clear and clean, defined by a distinctive aromatic profile which does remain typical for the varietal and is pleasantly aromatic. Reminiscent of ripe apple, ripe pear, a hint of smokiness from the oak cask maturation, and a touch of nuttiness.
Flavour: Dry on the palate, full bodied, moderate acidity and a clear tannic grip. The aromatic profile is lively, almost explosive, rapidly spreading the aromas to every last corner of your mouth. Persistent and pleasant, opulent and warm, but never too warm. Heaps of taste and character, a true gourmet wine. A top notch, textbook example for style.
Recommended with: It best accentuates Asian or other spicy cousine.
