WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, pale intensity gold, showing medium-sized bubbles and tears.
Nose – clean on the nose, with a pronounced intensity, youthful, with aromas of ripe pear, rich stone fruit – apricot, and a poorly defined tropical note.
Palate – a dry wine, with medium (+) acidity, no tannin but with a slight bitterness, medium alcohol and a medium body, with medium intensity flavours of ripe pear, apricot, peach and a hint of tropical fruit – like unripe pineapple. A creamy mousse, aggressive in the glass, with a medium (+) persistence, and a medium (+) length, with a clean crisp, yet gummy finish – with a slight bitterness and an aftertaste note of coconut.
