The wine is pale blonde in colour with a delicate balance of fruit and oak ﬂavours. The fruit component has citrus notes of lemon zest and lime while the oak component is present as wood spice, speciﬁcally vanilla pods and nutmeg. The wine is medium bodied with soft, lingering vanilla ﬂavours on the palate. The acidity is well balanced and perfectly oﬀsets a creamy mouthfeel. Ginny Povall – Botanica Wines
