The colouring is a lovely straw yellow with golden iridescence. The nose it’s extremely complex with a perfect blend of wood and fruit. Tropical, honeyed notes with a hint of fine woods. Elegant mouth, fresh and balanced. Long on retronasal smell, with the same sensation as in the nose. The fruit prevails over the wood notes.

Straw yellow colour with greenish rim, clean, bright and very atractive. Nose: full potential of aromas with medium-to-high intensity and some aromas of dry grass coming through. A nose reminiscent of tropical fruits (papaya and pineapple) and a floral lift with herbaceous, aniseed and mentholated overtones. Mouth: elegant and very rich palate, fleshy and well structured. A fresh and acidic mid-palate highlights its subtle varietal character enhanced by some fruity notes. The finish provides an intense and elegant bitterness.

Briliant golden yellow white wine. On the nose it is clean and it has a medium-high intensity. While young, this wine reflects fresh aromas of lychee, grape and pear, and also strong floral aromas, especially of rose and acacia, very typical of this variety. By time, we will also appre-ciate some hints of peach and banana, as well as aromas of green olives and rosemary. It is a very spicy wine, reminding white pepper, cardamom and cumin. A complex and well balanced wine, with medium acidity. Long aftertaste with a touch of bitterness at the end, reflecting the purity of this variety.

Excellent capacity for ageing over the years
