Tasting Notes

«Magnificent yellow pale color, bright & clear. Flavorful & intense nose which reveals dried fruits, almond, nuts, stone fruits with a hint of buttery aromas. Outstanding Mouthfeel, with a refreshing & well balanced structure between the fruit & the oak; this distinguished & harmonious wine exhibits a clean acidity which wraps up so well the distinguished fruit flavors.»
