Tasting Notes:

Aromas of stone fruit, pear and roasted nuts with subtle charry notes from the light French oak. The palate has a wonderful combination of textures and complex flavours, with the aromas carrying through on the palate to a refined chalky acid finish. The fruit and oak are well balanced in a wine that is complex and elegant, and will age beautifully for up to 10 years.
