"On tasting this recently I was blown away with the concentration on the nose. There is a real heart to this wine made up of apricot pith, white peach and mango nectar. Then you get hit by the autolytic (yeast) notes that come in to play - only fair as it spends 140 months on lees (!!!!). That is right, just short of 12 years on lees - which is over twice as long as Dom Perignon or other top Vintage Champagnes. So it should be of no surprise when this smells more like a tropical fruit vintage Champagne. The yeasty complexity changes as the wine opens up; initially bread dough, then fresh sourdough, the nutty shortbread - an ever changing beauty. Then that stone fruit skin just seizes the day and finishes this beauty of a wine - a finish that lasts minutes!"
- Dry White Food Match

Dry Whites are very versatile and are best suited to foods that are higher in acidity (vinaigrettes etc.) or in fat – the natural acidity in the wines will cut through the foods.
They are perfect accompanied by:
Fresh and Roasted Vegetables
Fish and Shellfish
