Maturation Wine matured on the yeast lees for 10 months. 30% new French oak, rest in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.
Tasting Comments A rich, full wine with marmalade, honey and fresh peaches as well as orange blossom flavours integrated with subtle toasty French oak aromas. The wine has a creamy mouth feel with oregano and apricot flavours lingering on the aftertaste.
