Winemaker's Notes:

Displays a vibrant appearance and lively straw color. The aroma shows white peach and creamy notes, with an underlying savoury character, resulting from the oak and lees maturation. The palate displays a wealth of richly textured fruit with melon and fresh red apple flavours knitting seamlessly into the cashew-like oak and yeasty lees flavours. The wine has an elegant, dry finish, with sustained fruit and excellent length. In bottle, the wine will reward cellaring for up to ten years.
My Notes:
