Note

A striking pink core with crystalline transparency. The nose opens with floral notes of violet, then hints of cherries and strawberries. Refreshing notes of aromatic herbs, such as mint and lemon verbena are the finishing touch and make this wine fresh-tasting and inviting. Warm, well-balanced and pleasantly dense. Long, vibrant, joyous finish.

Note

Bright purple upon visual inspection. Striking and complex on the nose with leather, tobacco and licorice up front, followed by the inviting freshness of grilled green peppers. Juicy and inviting on the palate with an intriguing progression of flavors, where a salty quality is well-defined and appetizing without being excessive. Delicate, elegant tannin for a truly enjoyable finish.

Note

Great visual impact, where the well-defined straw-yellow color alternates with green hues that create a lovely transparency, vibrant at the end. The nose reveals vegetal scents of sage and laurel first that open to a subtle myrtle with strong notes of iodine and brine, then fruity scents of yellow plum and Golden Delicious. Pleasant, initially-mouth-filling palate followed by a bold acid note and a lovely, long salty finish.

Note

A subdued yet interesting color due to the green hues in the straw-yellow center. Fruit plays the main role with notes of green apricot that open to peach and white currants, followed by notes of marjoram and lesser calamint. Solid on the palate initially then succulent and vibrant, ending with an appetizing salty note. Lovely zesty tones of grapefruit and citron in the finish.
