Residual sugar 0 g/l
Total acidity 5.9 g/l

APPEARANCE
A luminous pale golden-green in the glass.

NOSE
A powerful and complex nose of ripe tropical fruits, underpinned with aromas of ripe white peach, delicate exotic spices, and biscuit notes.

PALATE
On the palate citrus, tropical fruits are finely balanced with underlying minerality and pure fruit elegance. Extended time lees and malo-lactic fermentation give this reserve wine complexity, body and richness of texture that leads to an expansive, super smooth and lingering finish.

AGEING
After the fermentation in old oak was completed, the barrels were stored cold over the winter months with twice weekly lees stirring carried out.

PAIRING
Goast cheese, asparagus, roast lamb leg and quiche are the perfect pairings.
