Tasting Notes
A full bodied, well rounded wine with a complex structure. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours, as they combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavoured meals. Flavours bursts with dried apricots, pineapple and a hint of vanilla on the long lasting finish.
