On the nose: Its bouquet is surprisingly intense white florwer, fresh notes of rennet apple, peach, apricots and aromatic herbs with hint of wet stone minerality.
On the palate: Fresh citrus characteristics, with mineral and almond notes, complimented by white peach, apple and a hint of yeastiness. A fresh balance of acidity without being overly strong.
