Green-yellow colour. Muscat aromas of jasmine, white peach and apricot, typical of Malagousia, are pleasantly balanced by the freshness of a mountainous Roditis adding a crispy acidity and zest to the final blend. The lingering fruity aftertaste underpins the intense flavour and highlights a wine with an enchanting character.
