Simonsig Vin Fume 1997

The colour shows a subtle golden yellow hue, indicative of the process of wood maturation the wine has undergone. The nose has an underlying tropical fruit flavour overlain by a distinct nutty wood maturation character. The taste is a lively dry fresh sensation with a complexity of fruit and wood showing through the balanced long finish. The wine benefits from additional careful cellaring. A delicious wine to enjoy with seafood and rich poultry dishes. Serve chilled.
