Food pairings
A wine that could be nicely associated with a fresh goat's cheese


"A pale lemon yellow colour. There is class and tension here. Racked with lots of lees and those from the new wood have given some extra weight but a bit too much vanilla. There is plenty here but needs to refine during the rest of its elevage. Exceptional persistence.
