Beautiful straw colour.
Lemon, lime zest, ripe peach, melon and other tropical fruits as well, hints of white flowers and stone on the nose.
Light-bodied wine, freshness with grapefruit on the palate.
Pairing for risotto or river fish.

Price/quality is perfect. It isn’t too expensive but the wine shop’s sales guy just knew ALL of it. I told him I really liked the guy’s knowledge and the way he tells all about it. That should be one of the best compliments you (Evert) can tell the other guy. I really think that can be so important!
