Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: March 24, 2015

Wine Review: This unique pale straw colored white blend from South Africa is very good. It opens with a lemon and gentle oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle pineapple and Anjou pear combination with hints of minerality and lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would pair this wine with Emeril’s Trout Almondine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale yellow-green colour in the glass with jasmine blossom on the nose and hints of honey and pear drops, very complex. The fruitiness on the nose carries through on the palate. The acidity gives good length and the mouthfeel is elegant, creamy and lingering, with a subtle oak on the finish. Pair with Asian inspired dishes or creamy pasta dish with salmon and capers.
