Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is still very youthful in appearance.

Aroma

The aroma is a wonderful blend of citrus and fruit salad, subtle oak and the beginnings of complex secondary aromas that comes with bottle age.

Palate

It shows some straw with subtle toast and cashew nuts. The mid palate has filled out while still retaining fresh acidity and excellent structure. The wine is just at the very beginning of its optimum for drinking. Its youthful freshness is still very strong but the complexities of age are just starting to display their potential.
