Tasting Notes

There is plenty of aromatic vitality: green guavas with leafy herbs, drying apples, fruit salad and flowers are some of the scents to tempt one to take a sip. On the palate the wine is wel-balanced and intense, delicious succulent fruit. A smooth, easy mouthful brightened by crisp yet unobtrusive acid. Ends beautifully clean on a high note. A dry white wine with tropical fruit flavours. Enjoy with grilled fish or chicken, seafood, pasta or gammon.
