Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw gold in color. Intensely aromatic and fragrant aromas of honeyed lychee, straw and passionfruit with subtle crushed nettle smoothing the edges. This wine displays real fruit intensity without being aggressive. Rich ripe aromas meld well with herbal and citrus nuances and match well with the fine velvet mouth-feel. A well balanced wine with a refreshing long clean finish. Drink now through mid-2007 while it is young and vibrant.
