Wine Review: This is a very good white blend from South Africa, that is a light golden yellow color and has green apple, honeysuckle and saline in the bouquet, with some hints of lemon and banana. It is medium bodied, has medium plus acidity, and is dry and slightly creamy. There is some complexity to the palate with flavors of green apple, lemon, peach pit and buttered toast. The finish is crisp and dry and lingers a while with some spice! Enjoy bacon wrapped scallops with a glass of this very good value wine. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: The nose is clean, fresh and inviting with its green apple, white peach and quince aromas, with whiffs of acacia blossom, ginger and preserved lemon. The stone fruit character of the nose follows through with flavors of nectarine, apricot kernel, bruised apple and green almond with an intriguing chalky texture. The wine is smooth and round with slight oak nuances, a fleshy midpalate, balanced, integrated acidity and a vibrant, lingering tangerine finish with hints of white pepper and tarragon.
