Tasting Notes and Food Pairing Notes

Pale straw colour with litchies and dried apricot on the nose. Creamy died apricot with a hint of spiciness on the palate. Perfect accompaniment with 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.
