Tasting notes: pale gold in colour, but with a luminescent quality. Aromas are floral - acacia, lemongrass and orange blossom prevail. Fruity, round and buttery, with clear notes of peach, lemon zest, almond butter, spice. The finish has a lovely tension between a saline tang and minerality. For food matching, it perfectly complements grilled fish, white meat or a cheese platter.
