A delightfully fragrant nose of rose petals and jasmine, followed through by an off dry spicy palate; with traces of Turkish delight. Off-dry with a zesty finish. These grapes were harvested by hand, fermentation has taken place in stainless steel tanks.
Country: South Africa
ABV: 13% vol
Suggested Food Pairings: An ideal companion to fish pates, and lightly spiced Asian/Indian dishes. It also worked extremely well with fruity desserts or on its own; on a hot day!
