Full bodied white wine. Great food wine.
Golden yellow in colour, this beautifully made wine has an attractive bouquet of orange blossom, dry apricot and almonds. The wine is full bodied with flavours of granadilla, yellow plum and peach on the palate. These flavours are supported by the delicate use of oak which allows them to shine and brings structure to this refined wine. An exotic sweet-sour tang ensures a long finish and lasting aftertaste.
