Aromas of white peach, pear, and some herbaceous, grassy notes. Dry, smooth, with lots of pear on the palate, and medium acidity. Enjoy with seafood pasta in a light sauce.

Faint notes of apple and honey and a touch of smoke. Medium-bodied, off-dry with flavours of golden delicious apple, pear, lemon and white grapefruit. Great for your next chicken dish.
