Bright pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green. The bouquet shows aromatics of white peach and dried honey blend into biscuit nougat, subtle roasted almond and spicy citrus notes. The palate is layered with delicious white peach and nectarine fruits which meld into light cashew and spice elements. Fresh yet texturally creamy it possesses excellent length, concluding with great finesse and a lingering aftertaste.
