TASTING NOTE

It has the distinctive gold colour imparted by oak ageing, which also defines its aromatic profile: intense, elegant, with hints of ripe melon, grapefruit, vanilla, toasted nuts and dried fruit. Sweet on entry, with a structured palate and lovely acidity that brings everything into balance. The aromatic sensations resurface on the long, seductive finish. Brilliant, clear gold in colour, the wine is fresh, round, delicate, flavourful, fruit-filled (with tropical notes reminiscent of pineapple), floral, and elegant.
