  • Tasting Notes

    • A brilliant pale yellow color. The attractive aromas of white and yellow fruits mix with light woody notes. On the palate, this wine meets up to the expectations of its aromas: it has a round and full attack before the vanilla and toasty tastes reveal themselves. Good long-lasting aromas. The finish is slightly acid.
