Winemaker's Notes:

Pale greenish color with golden and bright hints. Fresh aromas, shows the fruity character from the beginning. Pineapple and peach together with small touches of hazelnut given by the French oak. Wine with good structure, an excellent balance, fresh and lively acidity. Medium bodied with a long and dry end palate. At the end you find green pear and delicate hints of white peach compemented with toast impression. Perfect to enjoy with delicate fish such as grilled sea bass, sole or turbot, garnished with capers or herbed cream sauces.
