Tasting Comment

Appareance

Clear, attractive pale yellow colour.

Nose

Subtle hints of citrus and white flowers (acacia blossoms). 

Mouth

Very light, with an elegant citrus (slightly lemony) flavours along with toasty overtones that add complexity to this very likeable wine. You can enjoy this wine with quiches, seafood, Japanese food, and pasta with pesto.
