The barrel ferment component is treated to six months maturation in a selection of fine French oak barriques.
Pale gold with green hues. Nectarine and white peach with citrus fruits dominating the bouquet. This is complimented by creamy overtones, spice and cedar oak. Up-front fruit flavours of nectarine, white peach, melon and lemon citrus with a mineral edge throughout the palate.
