Winemaker's Notes:

Pale yellow color with green hues, very bright and clean. Aromas are fresh with citrus hints. There is the presence of pears, lime and some tropical touches with a greenish finish thanks to the presence of green apple. An elegant wine due to the intensity and balanced acidity. The citric characteristics from the coastal areas of the Central Valley stand out. It is fresh from the beginning to the end, where the balance of fruit and acidity refresh the palate.
