Winemaker's Notes

Color: Pale medium yellow

Bouquet: Concentrated ripe lemon with notes of ginger, citrus blossom and apricot.

Palate: The palate is intensely fruity with an elegant acidity. A citrus tang on the finish provides focus to a medium bodied palate.

The fruit driven style with some residual sugar is best enjoyed well chilled with a cheese board or with Asian dishes.
