Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Clear lime hue with a slightly pale opacity.

Aroma

A fresh, crisp flinty vanilla with citrus and stonefruits.

Palate

An explosion of rare and exotic stone and citrus fruits wrap around the tongue; lime and tangerine, with nuances of lychee, pineapple and hazelnut emphasis and compliment the clean, all natural balance; soft and slightly lifted creamy east textured finish.
