The wine has a beautiful brilliance to it with a pale straw colour. With the first introduction to the nose, the soft chamomile characters greet your senses, but it has even more to invite you to enjoy. This wine, with notes of nectarine, peaches, fresh cream, a touch of vanilla pods and hints of roasted cashew nuts is elegant but rich and velvety with the ripe fruit characters following through and fantailing out towards the long lingering end.

Pork Roast with Apple Sauce and Pork Fillet with Creamy Mustard Sauce.
