Wine of a nice gold colour, supported by green glints. On the nose, the first impression is that of a very dry wine. Nevertheless, its aromatic frame is definitely typical of a good Chenin Blanc. The notes of fruits and flowers make for a good intensity. On the palate, the first impression is fruity, with the floral flavours found by the nose. The acidity is dominated by flavours of citrus fruits. This acidity gives a beautiful balance to the wine.
