TASTING NOTES

Color: Crystalline color with yellow and green reflections.

Aroma: Flavors of the ocean influence (salinity). Deep yellow plums, peach, apricot and citrus aromas. Floral and mineral notes, with a final hint of butter and vanilla from battonage in barrels.

Palate: Big impact on the palate, oily texture, and deep and intense flavors. The salty sensation and almond flavors from the aging in barrel make the wine a true discovery.
