A pale yellow color with green hues. The fragrance is powerful with dominance of mineral elements that merges perfectly together with aromas of white flowers and citrus. The palate is fresh and balanced, citrus notes (grapefruit). A beautiful length and a fat aftertaste. To pair with seafood or a grilled fish.
