The colour is medium deep golden with a nice brilliance. Though young it is already open on the nose as well as compact, unite. A gentle presence of honey shows a bit of development, dried herbs in the back are hinting at the Sauvignon Vert grape variety. Very dry and full bodied, with moderate but balanced acidities. Intense fruit character with plenty of character. Long, slightly salty finish.
The wine goes well with smoked prosciutto and blue cheese.
