Rum (Sauvignon Blanc) Molasses, Blended Still, Aged : 0-3 Years


Brilliant pale straw in colour, the nose exudes fragrant sweet honeysuckle nuanced by pear and granny smith apple before subtle aromas of nettle, green asparagus and pea assert with a subtle steely mineral element. This deceptively complex and integrated nose follows through onto the palate with generously concentrated flavours of green fig and zesty lime which are aptly supplanted by persistent grapefruit flavours nuanced by firm acidity and a balanced, lingering mineral finish.

Complex, concentrated and bold – this wine will benefit from both food and aging. A perfect partner for zesty citrus sauced white fish, tart goats’ cheese, and fresh green salads dressed with vinaigrette while young; with a bit of age however, slightly richer seafood dishes with a touch of cream would be sublime
