Wine Colour
At release the wine is a pale straw.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has distinctly lifted varietal aromas of ripe pear, apple and melon with a subtle blossom perfume. The overall bouquet is fresh, clean and very enticing.

Wine Palate
This wine, crafted in the French style of the varietal, has an elegant palate with regional varietal characters of pear, apple, citrus and subtle spice. There is a pleasing texture to the mid-palate with overall good acid balance and fruit persistence.

Cellaring Notes
This wine should be enjoyed whilst young and fresh but will also cellar well for 1 to 3 years under ideal conditions.
