Straw yellow colour with green highlights. Fresh nose of lemon and orange citrus with a hint of honeysuckle and white blossoms. Well-balanced structure, strong acidic presence and a gorgeous minerality on the palate. Lemon pith and zesty citrus flavours with layers of pear, green apple, honey and stoney minerals.
100% Melon. The fruit comes from a vineyard with an altitude of 50–100 metres and gneiss soils, which was first planted in 1975. Temperate oceanic climate with influence from the Atlantic Ocean, precipitation evenly spread throughout the year. The vineyard lies on a bed of metamorphic, gneiss type rocks. Average age of vines are 40 years old. Short pruning in the vineyard, work of the soil and vines in accordance to the rules of organic and biodynamic agriculture.
