Herbal and floral aromas combine with cleansing and radiant yellow fruits. Beautifully tropical and snappy on the palate, with flavours of tangerine rind, Granny Smith apples and sea spray. As always with Bien Nacido's treasured old vines, the palate is harmonious and long. (Drink between 2021-2041)
