Colour
Clean, brilliant pale with a hint of limey greenness around the rim.

Bouquet
An upfront herbaceousness is followed by a bombardment of green pepper, fig leaves, passion fruit, star fruit and limey aromas, ending with a distinctive, bright flintiness. This is an expression of the excellent climate and soil on which these grapes were grown.

Palate
The complexity of the nose is expressed on the palate giving this wine a full, crisp and lively mouth- feel, with an after taste that lingers.

Food
Pairs well with foods that offer a certain amount of zest, combining particularly well with veal lemone and grilled calamari. Also try it with steamed asparagus, a spaghetti vongole, an avocado soup or an herbed risotto!
