Colour: Clear and vivid with golden-yellow nuances, intense bubbles and crystal transparency.
Nose: Rich aromas of citrus blossoms, apple and pear with a hint of sweet aromas which give its aromatic character. Mouth: Youthful taste, lively with hints of fine spices. It impresses with its creamy texture, refreshing acidity, rich fruity flavour and lemon blossoms as well as its yeasty flavour, the aromas of coconut, almond and the hints of fine spices. The complexity remains with a long aftertaste.
