My first Narince made by Likya Vineyards.
The grapes are grown at an altitude of 1,100 metres.
Like Chardonnay, there are two kinds of Narince: aromatic and steely when aged in stainless steel or complex and creamy when aged in oak.
I’d say it’s more the first one although this wine was aged for 4 months in new oak.
On the nose, it’s quite aromatic with notes of apple, citrus, white flower, yellow peach and some mineral.
This wine is medium bodied and fruity with a racy acidity that brings balance to the high level of alcohol.
On the palate, you’ll notice flavours of quince, grapefruit, lime, orange peel, acacia and walnut.
I really liked it.
It went well with a piece of meaty sea bass.
