Lifted aromatics combine with fresh acidity and fruit purity to create a wine that is as rich in flavour as it is vibrant and easy to drink. Red apple skins, quince, honeysuckle, ginger and custard meld with an array of sumptuous stone fruit to form an enticing bouquet. The palate is characterised by a creamy honey-like texture that is balanced by a citrus-driven acidity. Flavours of green apple, lemon sherbet and honeydew melon flit across the mid-palate with a hint of salinity coming in right at the finish. Oak maturation contributes subtle notes of vanilla, cashew nut, and struck match. Perfumed, poised, and pure, this wine strikes the perfect balance between abundant fruit, opulent texture, and crisp acidity.
Enjoy alongside spaghetti with crab & spring peas.
