The bouquet is intensely aromatic, with white and tropical fruits dominating, along with some coffee notes from barrel ageing. There are also some more subtle aromas of dried fruits, nuts and aromatic plants. The palate is well balanced with vibrant acidity. Pleasant through the palate with great elegance, leaving a crisp finish with notes of noble oak.
