Bright gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Premier price for a premier wine

Positives: This complex wine features medium light toasted oak, Easter Lilly, lemon, lemon meringue, orange, pineapple, mango, peach, light caramel, ginger, dill, vanilla and some limestone on the finish. Full body with good acidity & a very long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: The winery uses gravity to move the flow of the grapes and its juice.

Drink now or in the next 10 years on its own or pair it with lobster cooked on a beach.

Tasted: 23 May 2014
