Description

A full bodied wine with intense nose. Minerality, perfume and extraordinary fruitiness at the same time. Rounded, complex wine, which tempts the consumer to pour another glass. The rich palate reveals ripened citrus fruits, sun kissed apricot and mango along with stone fruits, a touch of salinity and caramelized sugar. Acidity is well integrated into the flavours. Lingering, long sip.
