Tasting notes

Nose: Intense nose of sweet almond, sandalwood, cinnamon and rose petal. Initially tense, poised and reserved, the wine opens up to reveal wild honey, peach blossoms, pineapple and toasted cashew nuts.This carries through with wonderfully dense flavour with a taut mineral freshness. Rose petals and white pepper is softened by honeyed pears. The oak is seamlessly integrated and smooth. The mid-palate is creamy, yet fresh and the wine has a long, lingering finish.
