Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its light straw color offers a pretty woody nose and acacia flowers. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank, fine, full, round and nervous with a tense, coated and palatable finish.
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.
Do you know ?
