Tasting :

It has a lovely straw yellow colour with a steely green tint. Clean on the nose, intense and complex aromas which combine a variety of flavours such as green apples, grapefruit lemon zest and lychees together with hints of moos and hay and a touch of aniseed coming through. Elegant and full-bodied, long and complex finish revealing an array of flavours ending with that typical Verdejo bitter touch.
