This variety is said to combine the best of a red and a white wine. Its colour is lighter than other reds, but nevertheless, it’s a full-bodied wine, aromatically intense and flavourful, yet not tannic, more on the silky, seductive side.
Strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, comfiture, violets. Vanilla, sweet oak, truffles.
Known as a sexy wine, it will enhance the flavour of whole grains, all kinds of mushrooms and herbs, and sushi. In broader terms, this is a wine that will make any white meat look good, as well as soups, stews and flavourful fish dishes. With cheeses, it’s good next to dry and tough ones like Edam.
