Passa White 2020 presents an intense nose, very aromatic and immediately seductive. It is a bright and energetic white wine offering freshness with lots of citrus, green herbs and tropical aromas. It's medium-bodied and has a wonderful fruity aftertaste that's supported by the subtle acidity at the end. Great wine to drink now.
