Colour/Appearance: Pale gold.
Aroma/Bouquet: Rose petals, Turkish delight and lychees.
Palate: Medium to full bodied wine with spicy, candied citrus peel flavours and a smooth finish and balanced acidity.
Cellaring: Will reward careful cellaring, through the development of bottle age complexities. However, the wine is already drinking well and should be at a peak by late 2010.
Suggested Foods: Will match spicy Thai and Chinese food, and serve as an accompaniment to many desserts, or even after-dinner cheese.
Serve: Lightly chilled or at cool room temperature.
