Tasting Notes

Litchies, sweet nectarines and cream on the nose. Zesty palate with hints of lime and lemon zest, and a long finish with notes of black pepper and sea breeze.

Food Pairing Notes

Perfect accompaniment to fish and seafood in creamy sauces. Also pairs well with salmon sashimi, seared tuna steak, spicy mussel pot and garlic prawns. A good companion with cheese and mushroom pasta dishes and Asian cuisine.
