Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes: Brilliant pale yellow colour with greenish reflections. Intense and complex aromas of white flowers, citrus and minerals, typical of the area. In the mouth it has a fresh entry, flavours reminiscent of the aromas, combined with excellent volume and smoothness. Intense but pleasant acidity and a long, elegant finish.
