Tasting notes

Colour: Bright lemon colour. Nose: Fresh citrus aromas with delicate floral notes of orange blossom. Deep and intense on the nose, showing a striking minerality. Palate: Fresh and engaging beginning that leads to a textured wine. Voluminous on the palate, with well-integrated mineral notes and a vibrant acidity. The finish is fresh, balanced and lingering.
