Tasting Notes
Limpid, straw yellow in color with golden reflections, consistent.
The sample on olfactory examination presents the following hints: floral, fruity, mineral and spicy. Floral notes reminiscent of a potpourri of yellow flowers, followed by notes of yellow-fleshed fruit such as peach and apricot, with hints of exotic fruit; scents of Mediterranean scrub, brackish and iodine. Delicate nuance of spices.
The sip is harmonious, perfectly balanced in its components, fresh and with good persistence.
It is recommended in combination with grilled sea bream.
