Full Tasting Notes
  • Aroma

    Lifted and complex bouquet with exotic aromas of white flowers, lemon essence, lychee and oyster shell.

  • Palate

    Characters of spice, natural yoghurt, lemon meringue, fresh oyster and truffle are expressed throughout the palate. This wine has great elegance of structure with a perfectly balanced dosage, tannin and acidity.
  • Vintage

    Winter rainfall was well above average and the continuing, light spring rains maintained a relatively high soil moisture content to support strong vine growth during the growing season.

  • Food Pairing

    Suggestion: Fresh seafood either natural or with a light influence of Asian spices.
