WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, pale intensity gold, showing tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, medium (+) intensity, developing, with aromas of limy citrus, ripe grapefruit, stone fruit – apricot and white peach, with hints of tropical fruit – pineapple and rich honey.

Palate – the wine is off-dry, with a medium (+) acidity, medium (+) alcohol, medium (+) body, with medium (+) intensity flavours of limy and lemony citrus and pineapple juice, with a long long length.

Quality and comment – a wine of very good quality and harmony, with a balance between acidity and alcohol+residual sugar.  There is lots of evolution and concentration of aroma and flavour, with very long length and a clean finish.
