tasting
The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, yellow apple and mandarin orange, with ginger spice giving more dimension. The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate and fine textured palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite length and freshness. The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, that is balanced with some honeycomb and shaved almonds.
