On release the wine is a star bright, light golden colour. It is redolent with the aromas
and flavours of apricots, yellow fleshed peaches, mango, pineapple and comb honey,
supported by an underlay of freshly crushed root ginger and tropical spice. It is rich
and luscious in the mouth but an incisive spine of acidity and minerality perfectly
balance its sweetness, adding freshness and crispness to the lingering after-flavours.
While ready to drink on release it should develop a peacock’s tail of additional
shimmering nuances with careful cellaring.
