Tasting notes
Pretty golden dress. The nose offers spring notes of acacia and rose flowers and aromas of white peach. The palate has a very good balance between sweetness and acidity and develops aromas of honey, apricots and fresh almonds. Very nice length.


"”Rambunctious peach, lychee and quince notes tumble around in this dessert version, with a splash of kumquat and bitter orange knitting up the unctuous finish. Drink now through 2020. ""
