Apple, white peach, lemon zest & winter melon flavours. Unabashed richness and
sensuality in the fruit, balanced by a surprisingly taut and minerally acidity. A beautifully textured mouthfeel complementing rich white meat & asian inspired dishes. Drinks best for up to 6 years.
Roussanne, 35% Chenin Blanc, 13% Colombar& 4% Semillon
Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe yellow melon, baked apple, lemon custard and pear-tart aromas all abound on the nose of this rich, golden-hued wine made from 55% Roussanne, 15% Chenin Blanc, 12% Viognier, 9% Sémillon and 9% Colombard. Those notes all carry through to the medium-weight mouth, where additional tones of grilled pineapple and peach add even more fruity depth and richness. Ample acidity keeps the concentration in check, while a subtle texture lends some framework and interest through the close."
