It carries a theme of petrol, white peach, dried pineapple and nuttiness, backed by baked Gala apple and Asian pear with lemony acidity and slatiness to easily balance the residual sugar of 0.8%. Suggested dessert pairings include cheesecake, pumpkin pie and pound cake recipes developed by Sara Lee.
