Description:


Tasting Notes:

Pale straw-like yellow with green reflections.

There is a very intense and complex nose, with subtle aromas of fleshy white fruit, apple and pear, and a bottom note of aromatic herbs.

On the palate, it is mild on entry yet in the mouth one can appreciate its fruitiness. There is a good balance between acidic, sweet and proof. Very persistent finish, while the aromas stay on the nose.
