Wine characteristics and description:

Strong smell, not as intensive as in aromatic varieties, but still very rich and very distinctive. Mostly fruity aromas with a hint of floral and spicy notes. Banana and peach are the two most intensive aromas, followed by the smell of acacia flowers, again fruity notes in finer nuances like nectarine and pear, ending with a hint of dry herbal notes. The taste is as expressive as smell. The first impression is that of attractive freshness and fruitiness, lending it a refreshing character. Then the fullness of body and the strength of alcohol lightly warming the palate come to the fore, with extremely intensive minerality flooding the mouth in the end, extending long into the aftertaste spiced with light saltiness and somewhat acidic fruitiness of citruses. The aftertaste lasting for at least half a minute, pleasantly tingles the edges of the tongue with the lingering sensation of acidity, inviting to a new sip. Extra class (Saša Špiranec March 23, 2012)
