TASTING NOTES
On the nose, this deep straw yellow-colored wine displays tropical aromas as well as hints of apricots and fresh, sweet aromatic herbs such as sage. These notes are set off by floral scents of acacia blossoms and jasmine. One can also pick out nuances of ripe white grapes, crab apples and vanilla. On the palate it is rounded, but with an appealing balancing freshness and savory quality. The finish is very long. This is a very well-structured white that shows at its best after one or two years’ bottle-aging.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Carianum is delicious as an accompaniment for flavourful fish dishes. It is also splendid with white meats baked in tinfoil. Our favourite pairing is sesame crusted salmon garnished with chives. It is also possible to serve it a cheeses selection of great personality. Serve at 13°C (55°F).
