Fruity and crisp

Its pale straw color offers an open and quite powerful nose of white flowers, blackcurrant bud and notes of exotic fruits. On the palate, this wine presents a good balance, dry and nervous, on a pretty character. Final quite tense and fresh.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
