Pleasant young, fresh and crystalline colour, dominated by its pure and transparent light green shimmer with scattered silver highlights. It gives off a hint springtime with pistachio and verbena leaves. Very pleasant, smooth and tender legs. It has a very precise, refreshing, open and expressive nose, enriched with a sound and lively aroma, there is an agreeable and harmonious approach with the fruity spontaneity of green apples, white peaches, fresh moss and spring flowers, such as primrose and daffodil. A wonderfully pure and harmonious assault on the senses.
On the palate, it is a well-balanced and pleasant dry wine which is also fresh, refreshing, and pleasingly well-rounded with a pleasantly smooth and full structure which begs to be enjoyed. It has a lively, thirst-quenching thrust as it reaches the mouth yet maintains a subtlety of flavour.
The finish is strong with a pleasant and clear fruitiness.
This 2016 vintage is a finely suited successor to the previous vintage, highlighting the Artfulness of the wine-maker in how they allow the variety to express itself fully without losing any sense of soul and identity.
