TA: 6.2g/l

Tasting Note:

A Clean and bright pale straw colour. Fruit flavours of citrus, white flowers, ripe grapefruit and melon. The style is mid-weight with elegant oak noticeably present, providing texture and lingering flavours of cashew, roasted almond and popcorn. The structure is nicely fleshy with great concentration showing with finesse. It displays delicacy, but the richness and beautifully linear acidity make it a fantastic match with food.
