About the wine

Tasting notes

This style involves Petit Manseng that has been harvested quite late and thus gives some very unique characteristics of mango, lychee and pineapple on the nose whilst the palate is super rich and a good touch of sweetness with subtle citrus.

Expert review

Deep golden with a nose of daffodil, chamomile, candied ginger, poached pear, honey and lemon drops, marmalade, burnt toast and pecan. In the mouth it’s intense and bursts with flavours of ripe yellow stonefruit, nashi pear, marmalade and custard apple that bounces with citrus acidity, minerality and the freshness of Fuji apple. Stunning!
