Golden yellow color.
This wine is a white of finesse and freshness that is quite unique, very tasty and savory. It has a crisp, mineral-rich bouquet, white peach, nectarine and citrus fruit.
The palate is medium-bodied, very lively, with a soft, silky texture with good acidity and a mineral finish ending almost salty.
