“Very complex, very concentrated and very good.  This has a big hit of grapefruit and lemon citrus.  Quite pithy and flinty.  The palate has layers and layers of fruit, delivering flavors that follow in the stone fruit and citrus threads seen on the nose. Spicy oak warms up through the finish”

On release the wine light lemon/straw colour. The aromas and flavours suggest citrus fruits, apricot, yellow fleshed peach and mango with complexing savoury overtones of oatmeal, toast, grilled mushrooms and vanilla pod. It is powerful and creamy on the palate but an underlying spine of natural minerality and acidity keep it tight and focused and help draw out the lingering after flavours.

 

Oven baked chicken with lemon-rosemary sauce, creamy fish.
