The Wine
Pale lemon in colour, with elegant white floral, lemon rind and white nectarine on the nose. A touch of mealy complexity adds interest.

On the palate, the fruit and savoury flavours vie for attention and combine with the creamy texture, crisp, citrusy acid and long lingering stone fruit on the finish.

A terrific match to roasted free range chicken with a celeriac mash.
