Tasting notes: “With floral undertones of white fruits, green plums and acidic grapefruit, exotic aromas such as tropical pineapple, passion fruit and mineral notes are combined. The aroma grows in the glass. On the palate it is round with acidity balanced by a touch of glycerine and a smooth, plush and unctuous feel. A lot of citric fresh- ness and creamy salinity on the palate. Long, persistent and vibrant finish.”

Designation of Origin: Conca del Barberà.
