This wine is adorned with beautiful straw-yellow color with shiny gold edges, the wine is crystal clear and partially dense. The intensity of the smell is expressed, and the quality of smell is nice and pleasant. At the first smell floral notes of white flowers are dominant, mixed with a little citrus, peel of grapefruit and a little lime. Later grassy notes and reminiscent of freshly mown spring grass occur. And some chives from the market, therefore, the complexity of the smell is partially rich. The wine is dry, partially warm, partly soft, on the other hand pleasantly fresh and has a pleasant minerality, typical of Franko's Chardonnay. It has medium body and it is well balanced. It has a pronounced flavor intensity, and long-lasting on the retro-taste. Again citrus fruit aromas occur.
