This wine shows a complex array of aromas. Ripe stonefruit characters are coupled with flinty, smokey, toasty oak which lead through to a rich textural palate expressing ripe white fleshed nectarine and subtle tropical fruit notes. A rich and complex wine.
Serve slightly chilled on its own or pair with fresh white fish or shellfish. An equally good match to chicken or pumpkin ravioli, as well as richer dishes such as grilled pork loin with roasted nectarines.
This wine is ready to drink upon release but with its concentrated fruit and balanced acidity, this wine has the potential to cellar and gain complexity for 3 to 5 years with careful storage.
