Full Tasting Notes
  • Aroma

    Enticing and complex with nuances of sea spray, jasmine flowers, lanolin and grapefruit pith.
  • Palate

    Characters of spice, natural yoghurt, lemon meringue, fresh oyster and truffle are expressed throughout the palate. This wine has great elegance of structure with a perfectly balanced dosage, tannin and acidity.
  • Vintage

    The vines were fruitful due to the warm weather of the previous year and fruit yield was expected to be above average. It is proving to be a vintage year for wines of elegance and great aging potential.
  • Food Pairing

    Suggestion: Fresh seafood either natural or with a light influence of Asian spices.
