Tasting Notes
The nose shows attractive aromas of melon, fynbos and delicate floral perfume. These aromas carry through onto a palate that has pure fruit, lively acidity and a pithy finish. Nectarine, orange and a leesy complexity adds interest. Excellent ageing potential and superb versatility with a wide variety of dishes complete this irresistible package.
