Taste & Other Notes
When you taste it the wine has a medium to full palate weight with flavours that have focused spice characters to compliment the pear and ripe red apple notes. Incredibly long finish with nice juicy acidity that turns it into a delicious wine.
The Winemaker says:

Soil – Predominantly from vineyards situated on ancient river beds with sotny, alluvial soils.
