Introductory notes

According to Roman mythology, the Column of Hercules was built by Hercules himself, near the Strait of Gibraltar. The Pillars of Hercules marked the end of the world as it was known at the time. The words "Nec Plus Ultra" were written on the pillars. It meant "nothing ahead" or "no more" and served as a warning to sailors and explorers not to go further. Jidvei's winemakers have made the motto of this wine series "Nec Plus Ultra" and spent many years working hard to make wines worthy of this motto. Enjoy the results.

Tasting notes

  • Appearance
    Transparent lemon yellow color.
  • Nose
    The fragrance is very rich and refined. It has a scent that makes you imagine "green" and "blue". The direction of the scent is reminiscent of the sharp style of the New World. Nuances such as tomato leaves, basil, asparagus and freshly cut grass (lawn?) dominate. In it, floral and citrus elements are mixed, and it is a lot of fun. Aromas of acacia flowers, lime and grapefruit are also present.
  • Palate
    It's demi-sec (medium dry), yet has a solid acidity. Considering the aroma, I expected a slightly sharper taste, but the acid and fruit balance is very good, the texture is smooth, and it is very comfortable to drink. The acidity is strong, so the residual sugar is not overstated, and it is soft and has a gentle, medium dry finish that is more than you can imagine. It has fresh fruit and moderate herbal blueness, and the finish is pleasant.
  • Food pairing
    Foods that go well with it include tempura, shrimp and asparagus salad, Chinese-style salt-fried squid, rape blossoms, raw oysters, fried oysters, and fried salmon.
