WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

Pale yellow in color with green reflections. The nose is attractive an intense, a blend of green notes such as tomato leaves followed by citric aromas and yellow grapefruit. The attack is citric, fresh and mineral with fruit flavors like peaches and pineapples. The bright acidity continues into a long finish.
