On the palate, it is a very fresh wine, with good volume. It has a honeyed, soft and silky sensation. The small natural carbonic point that the wine has gives it freshness. The palate is long and persistent.

On the nose, it is a very complex wine, with a varietal aroma with a floral tone and hints of magician and pineapple. It has a small perfumed touch that makes it special due to the small percentage of muscat grapes. In the mouth, it is a very voluminous, glyceric, soft and dense wine, with a very pleasant aftertaste. Of great structure and persistence.
