Colour: A dazzling, crystal-clear, citrine yellow gold enlivened by a delicate, shimmering effervescence.
Aroma: The fruit emerges as delicate, golden, muted exotic fruits - mango and kiwifruit - and dried fruit - hazelnut, almond and fig. A touch of iodine enhances this wine's flawless nose. The mild spices reflect the wine's depth - white pepper, smoked tea and cocoa.
Taste: A wine with depth but also honed, precise, in harmony. Voluptuous delicacy with meringue notes. Subtle nuances evoke distant lands - mint tea, lime, kumquat and exotic fruits such as pineapple and candied ginger.
