Attractive pale straw in colour. The aroma is very uplifting with notes of rockmelon, pawpaw, pear and apple along with hints of nutty oak. The palate is medium bodied and richly flavoured. The ripe fruits continue to dominate providing a very enticing wine. There is evident oak from barrel maturation adding another layer of flavour. There is further complexity with honey, butter and creamy notes from the natural malolactic fermentation and time on lees. The wine is balanced with bright acidity adding backbone and length.
