Tasting Notes
In the glass the sample is bright, golden yellow in color with a perfect perlage.
The nose is a scent of citrus, white peach, apple, and freshly picked white flowers.
The sip is perfectly balanced, fresh, with moderate sapidity. A citrus aftertaste and a delicate nuance of broom remain in the mouth.
It is recommended in combination with an amberjack tartare.
