Appearance - clear and bright pale lemon-green with a few visible tears.
Nose - clean, brightly youthful with medium intensity. Very fresh aromatics of citrus fruits, mainly lime, gooseberry, tropical fruit and a mineral streak of pebbly stones.
Palate - dry, refreshing medium plus acidity, medium alcohol and medium plus body. It has a medium plus flavor intensity keeping it as fresh as the nose. The citric notes, some sweet tropical pineapple nuances and a trace of passion-fruit, ripe gooseberry and a medium plus, stony, mineral finish.
Conclusions (16,25/20) - very pleasing wine with defined notes of fresh citric fruits and ripe but also fresh tropical notes. It has a sweet note to it but very well balanced by mouthwatering acidity. A lightweight, which is a lovely Summer wine totally ready to hit you're glass at the beach and to match the light dishes of the season!
