Pale gold in colour, this Viura expresses aromas of pineapple, lemon zest, wild flowers, vanilla and nutmeg on the nose. It spends 6 months in French oak aging on lees which creates a rich and creamy mouthfeel.  Bursting with flavours of candied pineapple, apricot, peach and hazelnut, there is also a hint of anise and underlying minerality that keeps the palate refreshing.

Full bodied, this wine can be paired with roasted chicken or pork, cured Spanish ham, herbacious soups or rice dishes like paella made with saffron.
