Tasting Notes

Elegant and complex with initial aromatics ranging from white pear to peach, that opens up to subtle lemony citrus flavours. The wine has a creamy undertone with spicy texture from integrated oak on the palate and rewards with a generous mouth feel and long finish. 44% Grenache Blanc, 27% Chenin Blanc, 23% Roussanne

Food Pairing

This food-friendly wine adapts easily to assertive flavours, pairing happily with dishes as diverse as sushi, grilled sardines, Mediterranean-style roasted vegetables, fragrant curries and spicy Thai food with a hint of sweetness.

Cellaring Notes

The Amalie has the potential to develop for up to 3-5 years.
