The Tiara is a light white wine whose elegance, firm grip and vibrant energy bear witness to its heritage: high-altitude sites planted with vines older than 60 years. The vineyards are situated at 600 metres above sea level, and Códega do Larinho is the predominant grape variety. As it is fermented with natural yeasts, the wine retains its fresh and elegant character.
TASTING NOTES: The Tiara distinguishes itself with its undeniable elegance supported by a wonderful acidity and the pure expression of its grape varieties. The long fermentation period in large, more than 30-year-old 1500L - 3000L foudre barrels made all the difference! A discreet nose hints at the typical floral character of the Códega do Larinho grape variety, with aromas of citrus, orchard fruit and a touch of honey. The palate offers beautiful volume and structure. The finish seems almost spicy, long-lasting and balanced by an outstanding acidity! This Tiara is a versatile wine – it is an ideal beginning or end to a meal and can be enjoyed in its youth while it certainly also has a long life ahead of it in bottle.
FOOD SUGGESTIONS: Grilled fish, seafood and white meats. Vegetarian pairings: vegetable stir-fry and salads.
