The wine has a lovely vibrant yellow colour. On the nose the flavours are a combination of orange blossoms, peach, citrus, a bit of honey and slight touch of wood. The palate is full-bodied and complex with a good balance of acidity and sweetness. The flavours on the nose follows through very well on the palate. This wine goes well with curries, salads, fish dishes or any form of fish, poultry and red meat.
