|Tasting notes||The color is green-yellow with a few greenish hues. The nose opens with aromas of ripe peach, tropical fruit such as pineapple and hints of lemon. Aromas of butter, bread and caramel follow. The mouth is rich and smooth, with flavors similar to those on the nose and balanced by crisp acidity. The finish is long, complex, and with constant evolution.|
