CARA NORD White wine
On a floral background of white fruit, green plum and acidic grapefruit, exotic flavours such as pineapple, passion fruit and mineral notes are combined. The nose grows in the glass. It is well rounded in the mouth with acidity balanced by a gliceric touch that is velvety soft and unctuous. Great citric freshness and creamy salinity in the mouth. Long, persistent and vibrant.
