The wine appears a straw yellow with pale coppery highlights, prefiguring the generous, full-fruited sensations that follow on the palate. The bouquet is redolent of pear and pineapple, backed by a subtle herbaceousness, which expand steadily in a harmonious, almost stately fashion. In the mouth, standing out from the rest of the components is a crisp acidity that complements the rich body and natural suppleness, as well as its overall cleanness and aromatic finish, all of which combine to craft a delicious wine of immediate pleasure.
