An expressive nose boasting notes of fresh Gala apple, white peach, lime, white grapefruit, honeysuckle, and lemon zest. The palate follows the aroma with an added complexity of orange rind and lemon curd on the bright, lingering finish.
This wine is brilliant as a chilled solo sipper as well as being perfectly suited to pair with a variety of cuisines including traditional Pad Thai, chili shrimp, pork schnitzel with sauerkraut and spaetzle, country pâté and hard cheeses, a classic BLT sandwich, lemon meringue pie and even the humble kettle chip.
The 2022 vintage was warm and dry with ideal harvest conditions. Crop size was lower than average, but the grapes were of excellent quality, showing outstanding concentration and ripeness. The resulting wine is showing well young, while also expressing qualities that are very promising for their longevity.
