In the glass, a deep golden colour with a straw hue. The nose is immediately captivating, with heightened citrus notes of lemon preserve and fresh ruby red grapefruit, supported by the most subtle and delicate floral suggestion. The palate is expansive, dense and rich, with a tightly knit texture and energizing hints of apricot sorbet. The finish appears almost everlasting, as our terroir’s unmistakable saline minerality reverberates.
