This is a full, aromatic and rich wine that is packed with ripe tropical and white fruits. It has crispness as well, giving a more mineral and zesty texture. There's a characteristic touch of pepper along with a dry aftertaste that offers a strong contrast. This is a fine wine, full of character and ready to drink now. Screwcap.
