  • Tasting Notes

Glitteringly pale lotus yellow in colour, look for subtle aromatic finesse: a lively citrus profile of grapefruit, lemon pith and white floral blossom tinged with pear and mandarine. A backbone of steely Prince Edward County minerality highlighted by flavours of orchard stone fruit. An ideal aperitif wine.

Fattier seafood like salmon and higher acidity foods like tomatoes

  • Recommended Enjoyment

Apertif to enjoy while on your yacht … or dingy, whichever you prefer. Also, a great wine to “pregame” before going out with friends or a date night. Light and easy to calm the nerves and doesn’t leave you with that awkward purple stained mouth.
