Bush honey, apricot, spicy orange zest, lemonade and elderflower aromatics combine to form a rich, delightful nose. The use of French Acacia and Oak barrels, coupled with ageing on yeast lees, has imparted an extra dimension to the flavour profile of this wine; lovely texture with spicy complexity, juicy fruit and balancing acidity. Grape skin contact before pressing has created its heartening phenolic structure. A softhearted golden girl with unwavering backbone. Never one to be content in the background, she is quick witted and overflowing with personality. Enjoy with goat cheese tortellini with smokey bacon lardons and parmesan. Enjoyable upon release this wine will reward cellaring of a further 3 years.
