This wine is a classic benchmark of the variety and its homeland. A vibrant aromatic cocktail of sea-breeze freshness and citrus fruits with honeyed undertones. Bone dry, brightly acidic with a textural mineral smokiness and a food-begging finish. An ideal partner for fish and seafood dishes, paired finely with white meat, cheese, roasted vegetables and fruits.
