Honeyed pear / butterscotch and citrus flavours complemented by a firm minerality and spicy edge. Sourced from old vines from three vineyards. Characterised by their complex soils. Rich, intense, yet elegant and delicate on the palate. Profound wine that changes perspective.
Pairs well with a variety of foods, but we recommend oysters, game fish and Duck L'Orange particularly.
This wine will mature well over the next 5 - 8 years (2014 to 2017).
