Winemaker's Notes

Pale yellow color with shades of green. The perfume of boxwood combines with the flower notes of jasmine and the fruity aromas of melon and white peach. On the palate, the wine's pleasant sapidity supports its eminent drinkability.

Critical Acclaim

"A crisp, clean style, with good richness midpalate, showing off melon, apple and grapefruit flavors. Long, with an underlying salty mineral element. 18,000 cases imported"
