A pale lemon colour with a slight green tinge presents itself in the glass. On the nose an array of fruit aromas develop as the wine is exposed to oxygen. Expect Golden Delicious apples, Forelle pears, tropical pineapple, white guava, yellow stone fruit and tart quince. The palate is dry with a medium+ acidity, low tannins, medium alcohol, and a pleasing full-flavoured intensity. There is an excellent follow through from the nose to the palate.
The wine is youthful but generous and rich in style due to a large portion being fermented in oak, offering the best of both worlds – slight oak and richness, as well as bountiful fruit and freshness.
