Intense aromas of grapefruit and mandarin leap from the glass and combine with a distinct clover honey note. Subtle hints of lemonade and mineral aromas finish the deliciously complex bouquet.
An elegant wine bursting with flavours of mandarin and creamed clover honey with a delicate honeysuckle note. Made in a Spatlese style the natural residual sugar is balanced by firm acidity creating an off-dry impression.

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes were pressed with as little skin contact as possible. The free run juice was fermented separately at cool temperatures with selected yeasts to retain freshness and intensity of flavour. The ferment was stopped when the best balance between sugar and the grapes abundant natural acidity was achieved.
