Wine specs

Tasting notes

Bright yellow color with golden tones.

Elegant aromas of lime and magnolias flowers.
A sense of citrus jam and mastic that co-exist harmoniously with herbal aromas of thyme, sage, and mineral hints.

On the palate, the wine has full body, oily texture, and high acidity which balances the depth of fruit and the high alcoholic content. Long aftertaste with persistent aromas of wood, roasted coffee, and vanilla.

Aging potential of 8 years. Enjoy it at 12–13 °C.
