Colour: Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue.
Aroma: Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness.
Taste: Medium bodied and linear but retains generous focused citrus fruit flavours with sleek, balanced and crisp acidity. The wine remains vivacious and fresh on the finish with clean citrus fruit and stony minerality. A long, very pleasant lingering finish. Decanting and exposure to air opens the aroma and palate of the wine.
