Brilliant pale straw in colour, this wine is an elegant expression of regional cool climate character with aromas of white peach and melon complemented by vanilla from the new oak.
A medium weight in the mouth with ripe fruit which broadens with a touch of malo character. Grip from crisp acidity, gives the wine drive along the palate. Great length and a clean finish.
Perfect with oysters, terrines, and seafoods and creamy chicken pie.
