- Straw yellow, crystal bright colour, with green hues, an indication of youth.
- Attractive, fresh aromas reminiscent of peach, mango and pineapple on a citrus background.
- The grace and finesse of the Sauvignon Blanc meet the strength and intensity of the Assyrtiko. The result is a wine with a fresh full taste and a fruity finish.
