Pale lemon gold colour; tropical fruit, spicy oak and vanilla aromas; mouth filling flavour, long, crisp spicy finish
Under the straw yellow colour, the intense and simple nose evokes woody, empyreumatic, spicy and fruity notes. On the palate, it offers a broad mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish. Enjoy this dry, medium-bodied and woody white featuring refreshing acidity.
The fresh, yet creamy palate has an array of flavours including melon, fig and baked apples dusted with cinnamon.
As Featured in TASTE Magazine, Summer 2012. Pale straw in colour, this medium-bodied white exhibits citrus and floral notes with layers of freshly cut white peach. More notes of spicy marzipan continue through to a hint of oak. The palate tastes of cantaloupe and grapefruit with a gentle creamy texture, while spicy French oak plays a minor supporting role.
