Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw and a green hue at release. Delightful aromas of white peach, nectarines, melon and pineapple join subtle hints of savoury cashew and spice. Fresh flavors of stone fruit combine with a touch of tropical pineapple, cashews and an underlying creaminess from extended lees stirring to deliver a mouth-filling and enjoyable wine. The wine has a clean, elegant palate and long persistence.

Cellaring Notes: This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2012.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and vibrant, nicely packed with pear, pineapple and grapefruit flavors, sailing easily through the expressive, balanced finish. Drink now through 2013."
