The wine has a brilliant golden color with greenish reflections.
Complex, large, vivid, well-balanced wine with hints of hazelnut and ripe yellow fruit on the palate and notes of smoke and minerals in a very stable aftertaste.
Elegant, fresh and cool flavor of the wine reveals notes of juicy apricot, white flowers, hazelnut and hawthorn surrounded ringing overtones silicon and chalk.
The wine goes well with fish dishes, white meats and soft, creamy cheeses and mold.
