"Tardana, who knows it? Even in Spain a grape that has fallen into oblivion. Our anniversary wine, an ode to almost extinct grapes! A long, complex taste of tropical fruit, with a tasty and deliciously long finish." Derrick Neleman
Another Neleman wine made from an almost extinct grape. This limited edition is specially made in honor of our 5th anniversary! Tardana means 'late', it is the grape that is last ripe for harvest. Even later than the normally late ripening blue grapes. This makes it a risky grape, but that's why it has a hard protective shell. By drinking this wine - a full-bodied, well-balanced wine with a long aftertaste of delicate white fruit - you help maintain a beautiful grape variety. Our Tardana is fermented in an egg-shaped concrete wine barrel.
To celebrate the first lustrum, Neleman does this with a special wine from an almost extinct grape, the Tardana. It has immediately become one of their finest wines. A good balance between fresh and aromatic: almond, citrus and a touch of butter in the aroma, vanilla, peach and tropical fruit in taste and aftertaste. Fresh, but mild acidity, which is nice in combination with the creamy cauliflower risotto. Wine and dish have the same flavor profile: rich, ripe, creamy and nutty with a citrus note in the aftertaste. The wine shows itself in its full glory in this combination!go to the recipe
