per case (6 x 750 ml)
And now for something different. Wines in this range demonstrate Simon's innovative treatment of specific parcels of fruit and his willingness to challenge the 'everyday' winemaking process. Simon loves to experiment while capturing the raw, ethereal and sometimes undiscovered qualities of individual grape varieties.
Aroma/Bouquet Sweet vanilla, dried peach and nougat
Palate Richly textured, with layers of fruit, oak and yeast autolysis nuances. Peach and nougat dominate and the finish is long and dry
Cellaring This wine will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing
Suggested Foods Try with smoked salmon or eel, or with creamy pasta dishes
