Tasting :

Bright and clean wine with a creamy yellow colored body.
Blunt and clean aromatic expressions with a good intensity that is very fresh and fruity. This nose is marked by acidic apples along with enticing and penetrating ripe pineapple aromatics. As this wine opens to the air enticing but subtle citrus notes become fragrant. There are refreshing lemon zests alongside vegetable notes, freshly diced herbs, and white floral aromatics.
Fresh and enveloping entrance onto the palate. Expressive passage of tropical fruits. Sensations of Saturn peach and sour apples. Nuanced elegant floral expressions. There is well-balanced acidity in this wine which supports its freshness and makes this wine feel more lite.
