A very bright medium straw yellow colour. Aromas range from dried grass, floral and tropical fruit to spice. The flavours are full and ripe and the mouthfeel is smooth, rich and creamy but ends with a lovely almond nuttiness, which stays in the mouth for ages. Ideal for patio sipping. Enjoy with grilled fish or chicken, cheese soufflÃ©, seafood, pasta or gammon.
Drink now and up to 4 years maturation.
