The 2017 vintage is a dry, medium-bodied white wine with a hue of straw on the eyes. The nose is quite aromatic with highlights of stone fruit (apricots and peaches) and perfume notes. On the palate - nectarine, lemon drop and candied ginger are the prominent flavours. A lush wine with a crisp finish and good length, ready to drink now or be enjoyed over the next two years if retaining the crisp, bright characters is the objective. Aging further will lead to the development of intriguing secondary flavour characteristics such as marzipan, honey and nutty caramel.
