Brilliant pale straw colour with highlights of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Peach, apricot and honeysuckle aromas drift out of the glass followed by some ginger and spiced pear notes. Light in body but fleshy in its feel the palate features pear, peach and apricot fruits over a delicate honeysuckle and ginger spice back drop. Fresh acidity finishing supple and elegant.

Other Reviews…..
From a 2013-planted vineyard. A blend of 60/40% tank-fermented marsanne/barrel-fermented roussanne. This has the weight and feel of the northern Rhône whites it's modelled on. Ripe pears, quince and stone fruits can be found on the bouquet of this balanced, rich, but not remotely heavy wine. Pair it with chicken and richer seafood dishes. Drink by 2026.
