The wine’s intense yellow colour expresses the complexity of this wine. The bouquet is very fruit with aromas of mature yellow fruit, cinnamon, fresh vanilla, acacia honey and chestnuts. The acidity balances the high alcohol content and the full body. The tertiary that develop from the period of maturation in oak give this wine complexity on the palate, more roundness and a longer finish On the aftertaste clear notes of tasted almond and candied apriot can be detected.
