Brilliant light golden-yellow in color. The aromatic nose offers notes of pineapple, mango, and apricots against a backdrop of white flowers, vanilla, and toasted hazelnuts. The palate is well balanced with rich acidity creating a fresh juiciness in the wine with a pleasingly fruity finish.

Pair with salmon ceviche, sea bass with sautéed mushrooms, fettucini Alfredo, and razor clams.
