White golden in colour with hints of lime green hues.
Lifted and wonderfully perfumed showing spicy character of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla with stewed white peach and a grapefruit pith character with hints of sweet nutty smoke.
The palate is rich, ripe and generous, yet restrained and long. Fruit character of fig, melon and white peach are upfront on the palate with a complex mid palate showing great spice and herbaceous character of green olives, vanilla and a nutty cashew/almond like nuttiness. The finish is long, soft, generous, dry and long.
Enjoy with a crispy skinned kingfish, smoked oysters, Belgian style mussels or brie cheese.
Drinking wonderfully now yet will cellar carefully over the next 6-7 years
