Domaine Cortbawi Wit 2013

Cortbawi-Blance-Perle-2013

Domaine Kortbawi Blanc, Vallee de la Bekaa, Libanon, 2013

Deze blend van sauvignon blanc 50% met viognier 50% is zeer licht van kleur, heel fris, fruitig (veel citrus) en rassig, met hoge zuren die de wijn geschikt maken als aperitief of bij zomerse temperaturen.

 

Grape varietals: Sauvignon blanc, viognier.
Taste: A brilliant limpid pale yellow color with slightly golden highlights.
The nose is fresh with intensity revealing a note of grapefruit and peach. On the palate, it is soft, fresh and long lasting.

Winemaking: This white is obtained by bleeding after a maceration of 8 to 12 hours, sedimentation and fermentation at low temperature. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine is racked-off and treated with sulphite to avoid malolactic fermentation.

Ageing: To be served in the year following the harvest.

Recipes: Can be served as aperitif and can be served with fish and Lebanese salads and starters.
