BIO Organic Chardonnay
BIO Organic Chardonnay is a blend of organically grown Catarratto and Chardonnay grapes crafted by Terre Cevico in Italy as a 100% Organic Certified Wine.
The Bpuntio range includes 5 different wines that are produced in Emilia Romagna, Sicily and Apulian. All of the wines are certified according to the Reg. UE 834/2007 and 203/2012 by CCPB and also obtained the organic certification for the Chinese market. This Bpuntio Catarratto Chardonnay comes from Sicily.
Frankly, the vast majority of Organic wines are dire. It makes no sense why something as wholesome as gaining organic status almost always results in quality and consistency issues. We’re pleased to say that this is a wine that starts to buck that trend by offering really good quality at a great price.
Region: Italy, Sicily
Grape Type: Chardonnay, Catarratto
Soil: 100% Organic Soils.
Weather conditions: Moderate Mediterranean climate with slightly cooler days due to inland hillside vineyards.
Winemaking / Ageing: Both grape varieties are harvested separately and pressed to extract the must, which is then fermented in steel tanks at 16°C to exalt its fruity flavour. After fermenting, the wine remains on the finest dregs of the yeast for 6-8 months.
Tasting: Deep golden colour with green glints. Fresh, mineral nose with notes of citrus fruits and linden. Moderate structure, fresh acidity and a markedly fruity aftertaste.
Food Pairing: Raw or grilled fish is a good base to start from when pairing this wine with food. Crisp and fresh salads. Warm bread, good quality butter or any soft cheese would balance the minerality of this wine.
For Chinese cuisine consider anything with seafood that is prepared and cooked in the Cantonese style.
