A delicate, pale yellow colour with magnificent silvery hues, it has an extremely fine, harmonious and rich nose, redolent of icing sugar, sweet almonds, tropical fruit – banana in particular – and custard. A wine with a good structure, vivid freshness and balanced intensity: the palate is pleasantly mineral, and the finish clean, vibrant, with a delightfully bitter hint of almond.
