Apple & Quince Fruit Secco, Van Nahmen Juices
This fruit secco shows a luminous golden yellow colour and a
fi nely sparkling mousse. The bouquet offers aromas of ripe and juicy
autumn apples, citrus zest and candied ginger, as well as a hint of
jasmine blossom and mint. On the palate the fl avour is initially
characterised by a restrained sweetness, which thanks to the refreshing
acidity and vibrant CO2 leads into a pleasantly tart and dry
fi nish, with a subtle element of mineral salts. A hint of tannin
imparts a fi rm structure to the palate, and the aromas of quince,
jasmine and mint reverberate long afterward.
A noble, sparkling and appetite-stimulating apéritif without alcohol,
one that acquits itself nobly in the coffee-hour with fruitcake.
This fruit secco is subtly sweet and refreshing; does well as a
food-partner to shellfi sh and moderately sweet desserts.
