  • Sale
  • Regular price $23.00



Brilliant yellow in color, this wine offers complex, rich and multi-layered aromas of orange blossom, daisy, white wisteria, apricot, peach, white melon and yellow peach. Sweet sensations of custard and crème brulé are in perfect balance with the freshness of citrus fruit. On the palate, it is complex, fresh and velvety, echoing the nose with notes of pineapple, melon, Nashi pear, yellow peach and sweet pastry. The finish is fresh, tense and very persistent with citrus, white fruit, and pleasant savory notes.
A particularly good match for fish, seashell, risottos and baked vegetables.
