Taste profile from the winemaker: "Greenish yellow colour with clean herbal, floral and silex aromas. A delicious wine, crispy, with fresh citrus juicy fruit, grapefruit, minerality and orange leaves hints. Nice varietal tipicity, fresh and long finish."

ABC Wines review: A nice aroma of gooseberry and grassiness is exhibited by this wine. The palate is a balance of citrus and herbs with a mineral, almost chalky, character. The fruit flavors dissipate rather quickly leaving a mild acidity on the finish. At this price, a good value as an everyday wine for a variety of cuisines. Our score: Average, possibly a bit better.
