  • Tasting Notes

    Perfect everyday drinking wine.

    A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours.  Earlier picked freshness shows on palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavours. Good mouthfeel and appetisingly tangy finish.

    Ageing Potential
    Should last half an hour with the cap off and reach for the next bottle!
