Aged a couple of month on fine lees before bottling.

Tasting notes
Brilliant pale golden colour with silver highlights. Bouquet featuring soft fresh-fruit (tropical fruit, blackcurrant, and citrus) and floral aromas. On the palate, it is light, fresh, and bursting with fruit (citrus, grapefruit, and peaches), with a lively lemony note. Nice length with some mineral character.
