Exceptionally rich flavours of apricots, peach and lemon with undertones of cinnamon and hazelnut are derived from barrel fermentation. Ageing on the yeast lees has ensured a smooth, creamy texture. An elegant and powerful, aromatic white wine.

Creamy cheeses, curries and strongly flavoured fusion food.
