Taste profile from the winemaker: "Elegant, fresh, fruity aromas with fine spicy hints. Smooth, rich and crisp on the palate, with plenty of fruity flavours (apples and pineapples) and a touch of spice (fennel)."

ABC Wines review: The color of light straw and presented in a green bottle with a little plastic bull attached, this lightly fragrant wine has aromas of citrus with a bit of tree fruit. Dry and ever so slightly effervescent on the palate, the fruit flavors are nicely balanced with a brisk minerality. The finish is long but surprisingly weak with little character. This wine would make an excellent aperitif or serve with rice dishes. Our score: Our first taste of this wine made from grapes native to Catalonia. A terrific summer wine. Above Average.
