Description
A fragrant, fresh and slightly sweet wine. The colour is light greenish. The smell is very intense and attractive. The wine has a typical muscat aroma with a pronounced sweet (and thus heavier) character. The sweet and abundant flowery notes are mixed with an intense smell of muscat grapes. The taste is very pleasant. It is sweet, but thanks to excellently preserved acidity, the balance is perfect and not at all boring; in fact, rather exciting.

Fresh and light, modern style
