Tasting Notes
Crystal-clear, straw yellow in color with bright golden reflections, consistent.
The nose is intense, with hints: floral, fruity and herbaceous. Notes of flowers, orange blossoms and peony, yellow-fleshed fruits such as peach and melon, scents of Mediterranean scrub.
The sip is fresh, fairly balanced in its components, intense and persistent and overall of fine quality.
It is recommended in combination with a Catalan of prawns.
