Colour, aroma and taste+
Colour: Yellow-green and gold – its nature, interweaving freshness and maturity, is revealed at first sight. Fine and subtle bubbles are vivid and tireless.
Aroma: Complex and charming dried fruit aroma with a bread crust touch. Its distinct minerallity and pronouced citrus-like freshness are definitely persuassive.
Taste: A sophisticated palate consisting of pastry and white fruit as well as a full-bodied and harmonic minerality that culminates in a long finish.
