More about this wine
An aromatic middleweight, this wine will show its most elegant side when the partner dish presents it with some peppery spice and cool acidity.
An ideal accompaniment with dishes from lobster or smoked catfish to the delicate acidity of tomatoes, apricots, limes or passion fruit. Good with spicy ginger & chillies, with fennel and ripened hard cheese.
Ben says (August 2016): Honeyed pears, lime, passion fruit, cucumber, watermelon and mint combine to create a beautiful light aroma. In the mouth this wine has an excellent texture with nothing cloying about it at all. The residual sugar level is not too high, with less than 60 g/L. The pear continues with the honey. The finish is long with a flavour that I find difficult to identify. Answers in an email please!
