Wine Colour
Light yellow with a bright green hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has lifted varietal aromas of white peach, pear and melon – there is also a lovely flint character. A savoury, creamy complexity is achieved with the use of batonage. French oak characters are evident but not overpowering, giving the wine a hint of toast and cashew nuts.

Wine Palate
An elegant and luscious wine with layers of generous flavours. White peach, melon and lime are evident across the palate. The wine has a creamy, viscous texture across the mid palate, with subtle oak and yeast derived nuances adding complexity. The palate is soft and round but finishes with freshness and balance.

Cellaring Notes
Immediately approachable upon release but will reward careful to 2008, possibly longer.
