Cellar: Drink now - 3 Years (2019-2022)
ABV: 13%
Closure: Diam Cork

Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Aromas of pear and apple mingle with subtlety honeyed quince, citrus and spice notes. Luscious and rounded in it’s feel the palate sees ripe pear, apple and honeysuckle flavours prevail over a back drop of quince, citrus and spice. Excellent intensity finishing off dry with a lick of vibrant acidity and a medium to long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews….
Bright straw. Rich aromas and flavors of lychee, baked apple, orange peel and aromatic herbs. Juicy and ripe; the long, vibrant finish offers a hint of residual sweetness. Still a little closed, but this will likely improve further with another year or two in the bottle. About 70% bought and 30% estate grapes. I like this. Drink 2019-2024.
