The Details

Tasting Note Pale green-gold in colour. Fragrant aromas of fresh stone fruits and citrus zest with subtle hints of roasted hazelnuts and a touch of flint. Palate with flavours of freshly picked peaches and nectarines are complemented by a fine, creamy texture on the mid-palate, distinct and lively minerality with refreshing citrus acidity to finish.
Best Enjoyed With A lovely accompaniment to pan-seared crispy skin salmon and citrus hollandaise sauce or tofu scramble with grilled asparagus.
Treatment Fermented and matured for 11 months in new French oak barriques (34%), balance in one year and older French oak barriques.
