A big complex nose with yellow fruit, ripe citrus, lemon zest and an integrated barrel. The taste is generously fruity and medium-bodied. Good concentration with integrated fat tones, a lovely texture and refreshing ripe fruit acidity, as well as a long and fruity finish.
Goes well with:
Try with butter-fried fish with white wine sauce, preferably with oven-roasted potatoes and root vegetables. Also good with grilled chicken.
