Colour

Pours a deep, viscous gold, like the last rays of sunshine on a summer’s day.

Aroma

In its youth, the nose is equal parts beauty and subtlety. Ethereal aromas of marmalade on toast, honeyed figs, apricot and mango tantalise your senses and draw you into the glass.

Ageing Potential

Enjoy on its own or with a cheese platter or fruit-based dessert any time over the next 10 to 15 years

Palate

Unctuous and rich in the mouth, a thrilling array of citrus and stone fruits give way to nuances of candied ginger, Manuka honey and a delicate kiss of coconut.

The balance is undeniable, the luscious sweetness parried artfully by a racy acid line and pithy citrus freshness. Fleshy and vibrant, with length to burn, this is a delicious and complex sweet wine that is the perfect exclamation point to a special meal
