As with all Ashwood wines, quality in the Classics range is assured through sustainable viticulture, careful vineyard to bottle management and through the expertise of winemaker Steve Voysey.
Lemon in colour, this wine has an aroma of ripe apple, nashi pear and yellow stone fruits. Very Pinot Grigo in style, it has a tight mineral freshness and an off-dry balance.
The taste is delicate, with pear and honey flavours balanced by fine phenolic dryness and restrained acidity. The wine finishes soft and clean with a hint of ripe apple on the finish.
Match with Middle Eastern and Asian fare. This wine will cellar until 2018.
