Luminous shaft of straw yellow shines out from the glass.
The initial whiff leaves one immediately inebriated by a wave, stylish yet forceful, of tropical and floral essences that continue unabated. A fruit-laden carpet of clean-contoured citron, passion fruit, bergamot, and pineapple juice support luscious, fragrant effusions of gardenia and lantana flowers. After a lengthy pause for breathing, the bouquet releases the more classic nuances that carry us into sun-drenched gardens filled with tomato leaf and yellow bell peppers, perfectly-ripe peaches, and elderflower blossoms.
Spiritous, warm, and heady, it imperiously invites the senses to a committed round of exploration. This integrated aromatic amalgam is sustained by a complex of mineral essences eloquently expressive of the wine’s terroir and constitutive of the palate’s seductive weight.
