The bunch of grapes is medium and loose and the grapes are small, heterogeneous and with yellowish green epidermis with average bloom. It has a premature maturation.

Enables obtaining citrine colour wines' , with intense aromas, although simple, dominated by floral tones, with balanced acidity and an elegant final, thoughaverage persistence.
