In ancient Greece, “showing the fig” was a vulgar hand gesture, and Sykophantes means “one who shows the fig”. Sykophantes Blanc is bold and full of earthy, vinous fruit flavor from hundreds of pounds of golden figs, with a sourness that cuts the gentle sweetness.
The combination of vinous fruit, earthy sweetness, and sourness in Sykophantes make it a great pairing for pork chops and aged cheeses.
