Vrede en Lust White Mischief 2017

An abundance of tropical fruit and floral notes on the nose followed by hints of white pear and fruit salad on the palate. Soft, beautifully balanced mouth-feel.

Perfect with grilled pork served with lightly fried apple slices, Grilled Seafood or Chicken with creamy sauce. Great by itself.
