Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The bright fruit flavours and minerality shine through, with restrained use of oak & malo-lactic fermentation. There are aromas of apple, pear, vanilla & honey, continuing with flavours of warm lemon, yellow plum & baking spice. Aged in barrel, for 9 months on lees, the mouthfeel is soft, and the finish is lingering.
