Winery Tasting Notes

Golden straw in colour, the bouquet has stone fruit, lemon and floral aromas mingling with struck match and mineral notes.

The palate is rich and seamless with subtle butterscotch, flinty undertones and ripe stone fruit flavours. An elegant and refined style with good mid-palate weight and a lingering, creamy finish.

When to drink: 2017 - 2020
