Aromas of peach, apricot and vanilla. Flavours of crisp green apple, ripe pear and honey with a lengthy oak driven finish touched by a hint of sweet and bright citrus.

Balanced structure and a lively acidity make this wine an ideal pairing for poached salmon or chicken finished with crushed walnut. A mouth-filling texture lends itself well to a rich mushroom risotto, or spice it up with a mild coconut based curry, or a red lentil dahl. 

Wine Profile
Production Notes
100% Malolactic fermentation. Aged 4 months in 30% new French oak and 70% stainless steel.
Winemaker Notes
2017 began with high rainfall across most AVAs. Temperature differences with high heat spells in some areas meant irregular ripening times. Extra attention was paid to canopy management and a staggered harvest helped match intense ripeness with good flavor and acidity. A challenging, rewarding vintage in winemaking.
