A golden straw hue. Ripe peach and melon aromas, sweet oak nuances. The palate is fresh and approachable, citrus and honeydew characters are complexed by the gentle influences of ageing under oak. A soft yet fresh, food oriented wine with balanced acidity and soft creamy finish. A match to crispy skin chicken, white meat sausages or paella.
