The perfect little wine for light meals like chicken or fish with salad. The nose has peaches, flowers and minerality, and a nice tinge of chalkiness. This is a very fresh-feeling wine, with some apparent residual sugar. The fruit is upfront, then some mild, grapefruity acidity kicks in under the fresh, young red fruits on the end-palate. Only 10.5% alcohol. Highly recommended. BSE
