Nose The nose displays aromas of lifted green apple blossom, finger lime and bath salts. Age has added waxy, lime skin complexity

Food Pairing Fish in butter sauce
Cellaring 1-3 Years

Bright, light yellow colour. Fresh and vibrant floral and salad greens to sniff. It’s light and lively in the mouth, quite intense but delicate and restrained, fresh and lively, with a superb, effortless natural balance. The acidity is fine and seamlessly woven into the wine. It’s not bone-dry, but has impeccable balance and a clean and lovely finish.
