A clear, clean gold colour and a mineral nose with notes of flint and intense aromas of acacia and honeysuckle. This wine has an almost chiselled freshness. It’s power comes from a crystal clean and fine minerality. The aromas are complex. White flowers, citrus and smoke are to the fore. The finish has a liveliness that will delight the tastebuds.
