TASTING NOTES

Ripe aromas of pear, quince and Turkish delight with underlying floral notes on the nose follow through into the velvety palate which shows white peach and nectarine characters with hints of citrus, apple and nougat. A great Summer wine to be drunk young and slightly chilled. Serve with light asian dishes, fish, chicken or quiche.
