Tasting Notes:

It has a bright, straw-yellow color with green shades and a high aromatic intensity. Fruity, with notes of pear and white flowers, such as honeysuckle. Albariño's varietal aromas and the mineral character of the soil are emphasized in this wine. On the palate, it is a well-structured, full-bodied and elegant wine in which its aging in the bottle is present.
