This won’t wow the connoisseurs as it’s on the sweet side, but it’s easy drinking, maybe too smooth & it’s more than just satisfying
Description: Deep straw in colour with a medium+ intense nose and fine mousse. This wine features mild buttery toast, lemon, green & red apples, pear, peach, gingerbread, honey and Easter lily on the nose. Medium+ body with good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Note: Priced on the higher end, but well worth it.
Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with Scalloped Oysters.
