Pale gold with hints of green. Voluptuous body with aromas of buttered toast and crème bruleé. Firm structure with a mélange of citrus, treacle toffee, melon and a hint of ginger. The finish is seamless and lingers long after the last drop.

Excellent served with rich chicken dishes, matured cheeses and fish curries. Suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans.

about the harvest: Full ripe fruit was handpicked in the third week of February 2017.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were fermented in 300-litre French oak barrels. The wine was kept on the primary lees for eight months and batonaged monthly. Wine was then racked from primary lees and return to the same 300-litre French oak barrels where it was aged for another three months (80% barrels were first fill and 20% were second fill). Barrel selection was done in order to select only the best barrels. Lightly filtered before bottling.
