This cuvée from Terre de L'Elu  is a crystal wine of great aromatic purity. A subtle nose revealing fresh aromas and anise notes. The attack is silky and enveloping and stretches to iodine notes. A chenin with
almost a tannic structure, elegant and unusual, a great wine with food.

The name "Ephata" means "be opened" in Greek.

Match it with: a sea bream carpaccio with chermoula dressing (coriander, mint, lemon, olive oil, garlic, paprika). Typically good with fish, white meat or poultry cooked with lemon... or on exotic dishes.
