Tasting Notes

Not made in a full ripe style this wine offers tropical flavours of pineapple, watermelon and green undertones of asparagus and mineral aromas on the palate. This is a medium bodied wine with an aging potential of 2-3 years. Seafood dishes, creamy chicken dish or a garden salad in early summer - the perfect accompaniment!
