Winemaker Notes

Colour:
Pale golden straw with a tinge of lime.

Bouquet:
A lifted floral bouquet of freshly picked lilies, hints of oyster shells, the perfume is mineralized, soft and elegant, talc like; with underlying tones of fresh fruits such as gooseberry, passion fruit, and vanilla cream, finishing with a hint of mango and the sweet grassy aroma of dill.

Palate:
Medium bodied, well-balanced and soft structured palate, the flavours are long and fine, with expressive lush tropical fruits, mango, paw paw, banana passion fruit and sweet baby asparagus, all nicely balanced by savoury notes and a fresh crisp cleansing acid spine, which provides tightness to the finish, whilst the fruit remains delicate and lingering.

Ageing potential:
Likely life span to 2013 with optimal year 2012.
