This wine expresses the bright freshness Campo de Borja can produce. Located between the Sierra de Moncayo mountain range and the Ebro River valley, this historic region has produced wine since the late 12th century. The continental climate is mitigated by the “Cierzo” wind that cools the vineyards

Young crisp white wine with a light straw colour, elegant aromas of citris, peach and pear fruit.Bright tastes of key lime pie with the subtle notes and structure.

Great with appetizers, salads and seafoods. Also for a reception as the firm structure holds up to a number of passed hors d'oeuvre.
