Tasting

Seafood, sushi, fresh or cooked fish dishes and soft cheese.

Greenish yellow.

Surrounding fresh grapefruit, araçá and lime fruits, there are some notes of gunpowder and sulfur, seaweed and salt air.

In the mouth it is shown in several layers, starting with the dominant freshness, followed by a very full and involving tasting, to finish in a surprisingly long and salty finish.
