Wine Bouquet
Delightful aromas of white peach, nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus zest with a hint of cashew.

Wine Palate

    This offers a generously textured, mouth-filling stream of crisp, refreshing flavour from twist top to final drop of the lengthy finish and aftertaste. Aromas of tropical fruit, ginger and nutmeg abound. They precede a medium-full bodied, tapestry of palate-bathing flavourùwhite nectarine, apple pie spice, nutty notes and gorgeous lemony tang. ItÆs well balanced, well priced and well à delicious. Long story shortùpick up a few.
