Fairview Nurok 2011

Beautiful lime-green colour in the glass with jasmine blossom on the nose with hints of pear drops and subtle oakiness. Mouthfilling mineralilty complemented by stone fruit flavours. The acidity gives good length and the mouthfeel is full, rich and textured. A well-integrated wine.

Fish or a creamy pasta dish with salmon and capers.
