Tasting Notes

This youthful wine has crisp and delicate aromas of peachy sweetness with honeyed, spicy hints. The balance, integrated acid provides freshness and acts as a foil to the ripe fruit salad flavours. A soft, lingering finish rounds off this wine. Ready to drink, but given a few years bottle age, it should pick up a few more interesting facets.

Ageing Potential

Can be enjoyed now or for up to 4 years after vintage.
