Clear and bright with a delicate straw-yellow hue. Pure, clean fruit aromas of red apple, melon, pear, and Meyer lemon, with an accent of floral. This Pinot blend shows a smooth yet refreshing mouthfeel with a light to medium-bodied frame and flavours of melon, pear, white peach, and a touch of citrus on the palate. The refreshing finish provides notes of lemon, lime, green apple, and floral. Drink while young and fresh.

Serve chilled at 10 to 12°C to enhance the freshness and acidity (citrus notes) of the wine or serve not overly chilled at 14 to 16°C to showcase the richer fleshier fruit flavours. A terrific sipping wine or serve with pan-fried fillets of fish; shellfish; sushi; fresh spring rolls; lemon chicken; poached salmon; crab cakes; turkey wraps.
