Taste profile from the winemaker: "Appearance: Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow colour, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Aroma: Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples. Palate: A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the variety. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty ... a classic."

ABC Wines review: Deliciously fragrant, this wine has a bouquet of fresh tropical fruit with notes of honey. Richly fruitful on the palate with a barely noticeable effervescence, the flavors develop nicely into a round, balanced, slightly off-dry finish. Serve this wine with fresh grilled fish or chicken. Our score: A most enjoyable wine. Above Average, nearly Excellent.
