MORE INFORMATION:
A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. Soft floral and tropical fruit aromas such as honeysuckle and melon on the nose, as well as lightly wooded elegance with undertones of vanilla and spice. The palate is loaded with stone fruit, figs and a of hint citrus, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. A truly well-balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.

Being a rich and elegant wine, it will pair beautifully with creamy dishes, think chicken with a creamy mushroom sauce or rich fish dishes like salmon and croute. Mariëtte Chenin blanc and scallops are also a match made in heaven or try it with a ripe Camembert.
