Written Notes

Bright, green-yellow colour. Open and fresh white floral nose is charming and seductive with tropical fruits, lemon, banana, and apricot aromas. Dry and crisp palate has broad refined texture with ripe lime, honeymelon and apricot flavours. Round and harmonious palate with lingering floral finish. Cheerful wine that drinks well with or without food. Serve 10-12°C with Grilled Scampis and Coriander and Lime pasta. JL 88p (3/2021)
