This wine displays a brilliant pale straw colour with flecks of lime green. At first there are upfront aromas of steamed white asparagus, nettles and lemongrass with undertones of green figs and sweet peas. The palate is crisp and fresh with intense flavours of fresh steamed white asparagus and roasted fennel bulb intertwined with cassis, green figs and mineral notes. The mid-palate is focused, but not mouth-filling with a crisp mineral finish which goes on forever.
This wine is best savoured with delicate foods such as white asparagus with a hollandaise sauce, tuna cerviche, backed salmon with a dill & cream dressing served with roasted fennel bulb, fresh oysters or seared tuna.
