Wine Comments
A beautiful golden yellow colour glinting with silver. The wine is clear and very bright.
The nose is complex and powerful, white flowers, dried fruit, candied white fruit, with a honeyed side too, notes of beeswax furniture polish reinforce the complexity without making it heavy. The elevage in French oak is well managed; revealing some nice vanilla notes; hints which in no way dominate the wine. Each element takes its place and contributes to the fulfilment of a harmonious marriage.
The palate is superb, lightly candied white fruit and again, hints of vanilla and honey. The sucrosité is just right, giving volume, intensity and length.

Food Pairing
Roast loin of pork with apple-onion chutney, coconut-lime fish with peanut sauce or boiled lobsters with tarragon butter make for a palate pleasing combination.
