TASTING NOTE


Translucent and bright yellow. On the nose it has an aromatic profile of medium intensity reminiscent of white fruit such as Reinette apple and Asian pear. It is also slightly floral with hints of fresh grass and almond blossom. On the palate it is saline and has a lot of personality. It is a young wine of light body and medium persistence, with distinct varietal character.
