Appearance:  Pale white gold with light green sparks. Shiny and clear. Lively yet mature.

Aromas: Tender, rich and fresh.  This is a rich wine which shows off its heritage.  A touch of flower, a hint of lemon and, in the end, soft with hints of vanilla.

Flavours: This wine is full yet subtle. Our first impression is a rich mellowness where fruit flavours give way to nut brown butter.  The finale is lasting generous mix of fruit and mineral.
