SALVAXE
Light yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of dried citrus fruits, yellow plum, jasmine and buttered toast, with a bright mineral overtone. The palate offers sappy white peach and bitter lemon flavors and suggestions of bitter quinine and honeysuckle, with a touch of anise coming up with air. This intriguing blend offers a complex combination of power and vivacity, finishing with strong stony thrust and impressive persistence.Winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio
