On perusal the golden colour is embellished by the elegant, fine and persistent perlage that rises in the glass. The olfactory intensity is supported by a lovely variety of aromas and scents from flowers such as white magnolia and jasmine, yellow orange blossom, frsh and yellow exotic fruit, fresh herbs such as terragon, lemon balm and thyme, to delicate fragrances of fresh yeast and bread crust and light balsamic nuances. When sipped it is at once full, its initial aromatic power a match for the incredible taste and olfactory persistence, amplified by the salinity and minerality of the wine and by a slight bitterness wich reveals the identity of the grape variety and the volcanic terrain wich gave rise to it.
Serve at 9 °C.
