Tasting Notes

Colour Pale Lemon
Nose Aromas of exotic and stone fruits on the nose, with more dominant yellow peach, fresh hay, pineapple and honeysuckle flavours.
Palate Unparalleled complexity, a softly spoken elegance and a delicately textured mouth-feel. Tropical fruit flavours of melon, mango and passion-fruit build in intensity with great acidity and firm granite-like minerality.
Food Pairing Sesame seared ahi tuna & avocado.
Cellaring 15+ Years

James Suckling
An amazingly concentrated dry Riesling that somehow manages to be extraordinarily light-footed. There's a super-wide spectrum of aromas from parsley through lemon grass, with ripe white peach, mandarin orange and white chocolate in between. The breath-taking balance is more important than all of this, extending right through the incredibly long, lingering finish.
