The wine is pale straw in color with a green hue. It opens with layers of passion fruit, citrus zest, melon, and tropical fruit on the nose with a hint of elderflower. The palate offers juicy, weighty, sweet fruit balanced by clean acidity. Concentrated citrus flavors with passion fruit, guava, and pomelo linger through the finish.
Food Pairing – Delicious with seafood (salmon, mussels, oysters, sashimi) and poultry
