Winemaker's Notes:

Intensely aromatic with fragrant aromas of honeyed lychee, straw and passion fruit with underlying subtle hints of crushed nettle, this wine displays rich fruit intensity. Intense, ripe aromas meld with herbal and citrus notes. It has a fine and lush mouth-feel, which is well balanced with a refreshing long clean finish. The wine is ready to drink now through mid-2008 while it is young and vibrant.
