Tasting Notes
In the glass the sample is crystal- clear, of a bright straw yellow with golden reflections, consistent.
On the olfactory examination it opens with a very wide and complex range of aromas. Very intense aromas, scents of chamomile, followed by a scent of yellow-fleshed fruits of peach and dehydrated apricot, hints of tropical fruit such as pineapple and papaya. Hints of spices reminiscent of white pepper and the herbaceous nuance of hay.
The sip is very fresh, flavor and acidity integrate perfectly, in the mouth it is a succession of hints of ripe fruit and a very persistent aftertaste of exotic fruit. Impossible to resist a new sip.
Sample of great quality, expression of a great territory, a wine to drink at least once in a lifetime.
It is recommended in combination with Bacalao a la Plancha.
