TASTING NOTES Light straw yellow colour with golden highlights. Sensation of white earth aromas, of chalk and limestone, delicate white flowers, in closing, notes of citrus fruits and sour medlar. Fresh in the mouth and tasty, with oxalis and green almound husk notes through the back of the nose. Pairs well with fish cooked in simple sauces, seafood with delicate marinade, grilled vegetables with mild olive oil. It deserves a wide glass that brings out its aromas.
Serve at a temperature of 12°C.
