Our tasting note

Our tasting note

The latest creation from the house of Elena Walch shines in a charming salmon pink. Open-hearted nose of raspberries and strawberries accompanied by a fine citrus note. On the palate, it delights with liveliness, freshness, great balance and a wonderful drinking flow. Excellent as an inviting aperitif, but also with light starters and main courses.
