The elegant burst of citrus from the Chardonnay is beautifully complemented by the delicious Turkish Delight aromas of the Pinot Noir. The emphasis is on the mouthfeel. A lively combination of acidity and fruitiness. The palate reveals fresh red-fruit flavours of cranberry, strawberry and pomegranate accompanied by Pink Lady apple.

The perfect aperitif and a versatile food companion to duck, Mediterranean cuisine, sushi and an array of soft cheeses.
