Wine of bright straw color.
The wine has a light but buttery taste with notes of green fruits and well-perceptible acidity that adds freshness and a long finish.
In the bright flavor of wine tones of green gooseberry and fresh cut grass blend harmoniously with hints of citrus and floral notes.
The wine is perfectly suitable to oysters, jerked ham, cold seafood, and the warm goat cheese on toast.
