Golden with a bronze hue, intensive fruit aromas assail the senses. A very lovely wine from a great vintage with white fruit aromas while honeycomb toffee, caramel, candied orange peel, citrus and bergamot play on the palate. Charming with a lingering finish. It promises to age wonderfully in the bottle for many years.
