Tasting Notes

Intense aromas  of apricot, peach, pear, fennel and those characteristic of white flowers (camomile, jasmine). Reminiscent of recently-cut hay and with light hints of smoke. Silky, velvety mouthfeel that unfolds to a full body with backbone. The balanced acidity provides freshness and energy. Long and flavorsome, leaving a fruity finish, with a sensation that is even more intense than in bouquet, with marked recollections of fennel and aniseed.

Food Pairing

Fresh seafood and white fish. Creamy rice and paella. Pasta au gratin and white meat.
