Tasting Notes
The wine has got a clean, brilliant straw colour. The nose reminds of gooseberries, grapefruit, nettle, green peppers and herbaceous flavours. On the palate one experiences a full spectrum of ripe tropical fruit with a well structured grapefruit acid for balance. The finish is long and smooth with discernable peach tones.
Food recommendations: Al Fresco lunches - Norwegian Salmon, pastas, grilled sole, rocket and greens.
