Our Winemakers’ Tasting Notes

Striking amber appearance with verdant hues. Beautifully developed botrytis notes of dried pear, mango and fresh hay dominate the nose. Succulent flavours of preserved cling peaches and quince paste on the palate are supported by subtle oaky tones reminiscent of hot buttered toast. A fine acidity heightens fruit purity and underpins a long and flavourful finish.
