Straws of sunshine and glimmers of gold with whispers of granny apple green at rim’s edge betray the refreshing appeal of this natural beauty.


Flirtatious fragrances of tropical melons and spring flowers bewitch your senses and foreshadow the vibrant and voluptuous personality of this wine.


Finessed floral sensations beguile your senses before revealing a supple body that slowly undresses a melody of peach, pear and pineapple flavours. Harmonious notes of honey and white spices climax in a luscious lemon cream farewell that leaves you wanting more (much more). A truly vivacious blonde.
