Characteristics

Tasting Notes

This wine has an attractive golden hue which indicates it’s a wine with great extract and intensity. The nose shows an array of attractive aromas of white nectarine and peach blossom with hints of almond. The palate is full bodied and layered with beautiful fruity flavours and soft wood spice. Some lemon cream nuances are left lingering on the fresh, rounded finish. A terroir driven wine!
