Mar de Frades 2020

 

Intense, bright and clean yellow with golden hues. Deep appealing macerated fruit (apricot, pineapple and passion fruit) with a wrapping background of balsamic notes. Powerful and fruity with good persistence and aromatic finish. The 2015 harvest is characterised by its bright, raw-lime colour, with glints of greengages. This radiant appearance announces the aromas you can find on the nose, with mango, pineapple and lychees mingling with wild blossom and the balsamic notes of eucalyptus. On the palate, its power comes through in its fresh saltiness and its Atlantic stamp is shown in its mineral nuances and the lingering persistency of the tropical fruit.
