This wine is fruit driven in style, exhibiting a myriad of aromatics, namely ripe peach and pear notes with underlying citrus and fig characters. On the palate these initial fruit flavours are followed by a creamy, mealy texture and integrated oak. A medium bodied wine that is soft and styled for enjoyment now.
Enjoy with seafood, chicken Caesar salad or an antipasto platter.
