Tasting notes

Colour: It stands out for its great intensity, excellent depth of color, but above all for its luminosity, with some cherry reddish tones and violet hues on the rim accompanied by bluish glints.

Nose: It is an inspiration to the ethereal world, to the fresh air; a combination of jasmine flower with citrus notes of acid grapefruit, surrounded by a variety of red fruit. A more balsamic side appears in the background, eucalyptus and aromatic notes that evoke height and sublime freshness.

Palate: Balance and elegance are in its DNA; constants throughout its passage in the mouth. The soft tactile sensations of its structure intertwine with the fresh fruit, the result of cultivation at high altitude.
