Tasting Notes: A fun, off-dry blend of 46% Pinot Gris, 25% Chardonnay, 11% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% each of Pinot Blanc, Viognier and Gewurztraminer offering loads of tropical fruit and mineral characters with a summertime afternoon-drinking-friendly level of alcohol; you could sip this tasty wine all day! Citrus, kiwi, gooseberry and ripe apple aromas grace the pleasant nose followed by similar flavours on the zesty and honeyed palate that finishes crisp with lingering lemon tang and slate notes. Designed to be enjoyed in its youth. Drink 20132014.
