Colour: Lemon and pale straw colour.
Nose: This wine has an inviting nose of honeyed citrus, potpourri and peach blossoms with a subtle hint of beeswax.
Palate: A full bodied, gentle palate with fresh, chalky citrus, yellow flowers, candied almonds and ginger spice. The flavours are vibrant and the finish refined.
Pairing: Exceptionally well suited to grilled fish, creamy Alfredo pasta and salads. The weight and creaminess of the wine makes it ideally matched for mild, aromatic curries.
