Beautiful pale lemon colour, with concentrated tropical fruit aromas of green pineapples, mangos and limes. The wine also shows a slight earthy character on the nose, reminiscent of flor yeast and Fynbos shrub. The palate is medium-bodied, with lots of texture and stellar balance between the fruit, acidity and oak components. The fruit complexity carries through to the finish, with a touch of green almonds on the aftertaste.
