An ever-so-gentle golden hue is seen in the glass, promising a delightful tasting experience. The nose in incredibly inviting, ripe apricots, naartjie, quince and loquat aromas are in abundance. The touch of oak is well integrated. with light vanilla and slightly smoky characteristics floating at the edge of perception. The wine has a divine mid-palate weight, with a juicy acidity that carries the fruit to a long and zesty finish.
