Tasting Notes from The Curator
Pale lemon color and lime green reflections. Aromas of orange peel and lychee that are interspersed with white flowers and mineral notes. There are balsamic nuances that end up marking its freshness and salinity. On the palate, it is powerful, splendid, where volume and harmony are achieved with the balance between the freshness of the fruit and the sea breeze. Gives off an elegant and delicate finish.
