Tasting Notes

Inviting aromas of citrus, guava, lemongrass, orange blossom and hints of boxwood and tangerine. On the palate, the wine is fresh and bright with citrus flavors and a lingering finish with a touch of bright acidity. The weight, flavorful texture and acidity make this a versatile food wine.

Food Pairings

Try pairing AVETA with grilled oysters with mignonette sauce, grilled prosciutto-wrapped shrimp or fresh fish ceviche with cilantro.
