Tasting notes

Bright lemon-gold color with light pearliness. The nose is clean, youthful with pronounced fruit and floral notes reminiscent of mandarin peel, honeysuckle and sweet orange blossom. On the palate it has a sweet lusciousness that coats the mouth and yet refreshes itself with airy bubbles and harmonious balance.
