Winemaker's Note

The wine offers a complex nose showing quince, white peach and yellow apple, with fenugreek spices give more dimension alongside the mineral intensity of the wine.

The stone fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally balanced, very delicate and fine textured palate showing a peach-melba character with an exquisite length and freshness.

The wine lingers with hints of ripe nectarine and apricot, zesty lemon and wet chalk.
