AWARDS & ACCOLADES

 

ASSESSMENT

Colour: Pale straw colour.

Bouquet: Lifted nose of tropical and gooseberry fruits, perfectly balanced by mealy notes and subtle hints of struck match and herbaceous characters. A complete and complex bouquet.

Palate: Lively and generous front palate showing a great balance of both herbaceous and tropical fruit notes. The gooseberry characters are backed by hints of lychee and feijoa. There is a wonderful texture and mouth feel, creating a complex wine with that extra dimension. A crisp acid back bone gives the wine great balance, structure and a clean, long finish.

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENT
Ideal aperitif wine, will also accompany fish, chicken and pasta.

CELLARING POTENTIAL
This wine is made to enjoy now, while the fruit characters are lifted and vibrant. Yet, if it gets lost in your cellar, the quality of the fruit and the acid structure ensures that it will still be lively and drinking very will within eight to ten years.
