The wine is a clear straw-gold color.
The wine has a delicious, fresh taste of high-end sea salty minerality interwoven with notes of very ripe yellow and white fruit. Long aftertaste comes with juicy notes of sea breeze and a spicy tinge Cherry pits.
Lovely, juicy notes of apple, ripe yellow fruit tones of crushed chalk, lime, vanilla and spicy notes of chicken, seasoned with herbs, form a wonderful, woven of contradictions, elegant aroma of this wine.
The wine is recommended with seafood, fresh sea fish and white meat.
