Intense straw-yellow with green flecks.
The charm of its minerality is unrivalled. Wonderful for its simplicity of style, distinguished by power and rotundity. The mouthfilling roundness of its imposing structure is a distinctive trait, making it the volcano's archetypal wine.
The enchanting intensity of its aromas clearly develops as it meets the nose with hints of yellow wild broom and acacia flowers, combined with fruity notes of white-fleshed fruit, apples and ripe peaches, not forgetting the nuances of aromatic herbs and seaweed. Gentle and unrelenting, it glows with elegance and body. Pure and aristocratic, it stands out amongst the great white wines produced in high-altitude vineyards.
