Using only Quebranta grapes from the Ica area of Peru, Soldeica Pisco is a strongly flavoured crystal clear pisco which has the comforting aroma of cooking bread dough. Oily and nutty scents are also released and the flavour is sweet and light, with a mouthfeel which is slightly oily and smooth. Aromatic flavours are led by herbaceous notes and that bready aroma becomes apparent in the flavour too. Easily drinkable and delicately sweet, each sip of Soldeica Pisco is exceptional.
