Medium intensity with dominant characters of honeysuckle and pineapple with a floral finish. The sweetness is well balanced by a zesty acidity. A versatile refreshing wine with enough body, structure and intensity to complement heavier foods.

Vinification Only the free run juice from the gently pressed grapes was used. The base wine was fermented at low temperatures to preserve the more delicate characters.
