Wine Review: This very pale straw colored white wine opens with a fragrant mild pear bouquet with of smoke and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and viscous. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green pear with hints of tangerine and a touch of mild grapefruit and lime. The finish is dry and it gracefully fades away. This wine would pair very well with pan seared sea scallops with a ginger lime butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Vibrant, pale straw with green tinges. Bouquet: Intense perfumed nose, combining attractive cut grass and hazelnut aromas and clean vanillin oak. Palate: Wonderful, round middle palate represents a complex amalgam of lemon, floral white flower and papaya flavours and clean background oak. The finish is very long and lingering. Cellaring: Already drinking superbly, but has all the qualities to develop for several years given suitable cellaring conditions. Food: Prawns, crabs, scallops and fish.
