  • Shiraz: rich garnet color with a purplish sheen. The bouquet of the wine opens with the aromas of oriental spices, plum, rosemary and grilled steak. A medium-bodied, rounded wine with silky tannins and a long, juicy aftertaste. Best served with grilled beef or lamb (quiche or lamb pulp), aged cow or sheep cheeses;
  • Riesling: pale straw color. The bright bouquet is dominated by tones of white flowers and yellow fruits, lemongrass, coriander, spices. Refreshing and quite rich in taste with a bright fruit dominant, excellent acidity, and hints of lemon meringue in the aftertaste. Best paired with light salads or light snacks of Chinese cuisine, seafood ceviche, sushi, rolls, and sashimi;
  • Cabernet Sauvignon: the wine has a brilliant ruby color, in the bouquet of which you can get notes of ripe black currant and chocolate. Elegant and medium-bodied, the taste notes of plum and mint are harmoniously combined with the notes of aging. Perfect with beef cheeks and grilled vegetables.
