A nose of hazelnuts followed by pink grapefruit. In the mouth, the wine balances creamy honeyed notes with refreshing citrus notes. Serve with summer salads sprinkled with roasted nuts, with Sunday roast pork or creamy pasta dishes or, as attested by a customer, with "Moroccan spiced (cumin and coriander) fish cakes with Indian-spiced (turmeric) potatoes and spiced (cumin and cayenne) pea / tomato medley. It was a perfect pairing!"

Ben says (September 2017): A first impression would seem to indicate that this is a Riesling. Of course it is not. Whilst the aroma and flavour descriptions still fit to an extent (the hazelnut has given way to a more petrol aroma, hence the grape confusion), this wine has gained some real elegance and depth with age. The food pairing that sprang to mind (Joelle's mind) was for a saffron infused creamy seafood dish.

It is a wine-lover's wine and only for those who deserve it. Treat it with reverence and you will get a return beyond that for which you may have hoped.
