Bush honey, apricot, spicy orange zest, lemonade and elderflower aromatics combine to form a rich, delightful nose. The use of French Acacia and Oak barrels, coupled with ageing on yeast lees, has imparted an extra dimension to the flavour profile of this wine; lovely texture with spicy complexity, juicy fruit and balancing acidity. Grape skin contact before pressing has created its heartening phenolic structure. A soft-hearted golden girl with unwavering backbone. Never one to be content in the background, she is quick witted and overflowing with personality.
