Tasting Notes
Crystal-clear, with an intense, consistent golden mantle.
On the olfactory examination the sample results from the wide and beautifully outlined range of aromas. Hints of broom flowers, accompanied by a scent of ripe fruit reminiscent of yellow peach, and a basket of tropical fruits. Hints of spice and star anise finish.
In the mouth it is fresh, balanced in its components. It confers softness and freshness on the palate, a good persistence of the olfactory taste that recalls Mediterranean herbs and hints of papaya.
Tasted with a Catalan of shellfish, a very interesting combination.
