Vibrant green/ gold hues. Lifted floral and citrus aromas, delicate hints of musk, passionfruit and a touch of spice. A fresh, lively palate, lime and floral flavours with just a hint of sweetness to offset the natural citrus, well balanced acidity and a crisp, refreshing finish. Great with salad niçoise or a grill of the freshest fishes.
