Sold in case of 6 x 750ml

Out of stock


Pale bright gold – whiff of cream and clementine, peach and quince, with hints of vanilla and judicious oak maturation overtones. Tropical notes on the pallet also display white juicy fruits of lychee and apricot. Rich, concentrated, and with mouth-watering appeal, this full bodied yet soft wine will round out to become even longer and more lingering. Alc: 14.4%, RS: 0.22g/100ml, TA: 5.1g/l, pH: 3.4
