The wine has a pale yellow colour with a greenish tint. The nose is flinty, dusty and grassy with a touch of gooseberries. The palate is crisp, dry with flavour of green figs, flintiness, fresh cut grass which end in gooseberries. The wines are very well-balanced with a good acidity. The wine will only start to get to its full potential by September 2000. This wine should be enjoyed with light meat salads, creamy soups, grilled chicken dishes, asparagus, fish in any form and pre-dinner drink.
