"The range of aromas seduces more by its depth than by its exuberance. The subtle nose develops hints of lemon verbena. The mineral and flint profile brings complexity. The finish is subtly woody without impacting the freshness. The mouth is generous and firm at the same time, the mineral bitters rival with the full-body all along the tasting. The mouth ends with a salty print, reinforcing the persistence of the wine."
