 TASTING NOTES

Aromas of tropical fruit and rock melon dominate on the nose with hints of pear and tangelo on a back drop of smoky oak. This is an elegant wine with peach, pear, rock melon and mineral notes. Well balanced and yet firm this wine will suit a wide range of dishes. Some cellaring may benefit this wine. Drink 2013 to 2018. Serve with poultry dishes, salad and seafood.
