Golden violet crumble colour that pops in the glass. Subtle quince notes expressed alongside some gently pressed Thai basil flavours coupled with enriching jasmine undertones. The quince notes follow through on the palate and with an unctuous mouth-filling texture it neither over or under whelms the tastebuds, it whelms. This wine is the chameleon of the range, forever expressing itself in the glass.
