Winemaker's Notes:

Lemon, quince and nectarine fruits integrate beautifully with winemaking derived aromas to impart a creamy, vanilla custard note with a dash of almond meal. A supple, lithe palate with a fine core of acid, loads of mouth filling texture adding dimension to the vibrant fruit notes. A harmonious wine with a clean finish and delicious lingering flavors.

About Plantagenet:

The first vines were planted in 1968 at "Bouverie" Denbarker. These consisted of 4 1/2 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Plantagenet Wines now has boosted the total acreage to 100, including Malbec, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Plantagenet aims to make elegant, structured wines that have complexity, finesse and balance.
